The April edition of the Zemax Community newsletter is available now!

Category: Company News

Our Zemax Community is a gathering place for all things optics. Within this community, you will be able to learn more about your Zemax products and chat with other industry professionals about the latest trends. 

The monthly Community Newsletter provides updates on items you might find interesting or helpful from the last month! In each edition, we call out forum posts you may have missed, new Knowledgebase articles, and honor a Zemax user who has made a contribution to their peers. Here are a couple highlights from the April edition:

Featured Community Post: Mathematica

In OpticStudio 22.1 Mathematica templates have been added to support Mathematica users when using ZOS-API. Since this, we have seen questions popping on the forum so if you are a Mathematic user, make sure to read this post. In addition to the samples provided with your OpticStudio download, you can also find discussion about this newly-supported language on the forums. Find some posts on the topic in this month's newsletter.
