Equation Driven Surfaces for Optical Parts Creation in OpticsBuilder
The ability to save the parts into PDM systems now includes the option to recall the equations used to generate the surfaces. Legacy import of geometry into OpticsBuilder uses splines/NURBS sampling based on the equations provided by OpticStudio which offers speed and accuracy high enough for most applications. The new import option, “Equation Driven Import” allows for more accurate surface representation using the exposed equations to create parts. The equation will be integrated into the part file. This feature helps those users who need to design complex mechanical mounting edges with higher accuracies. In this webinar, we show how to use “Equation Driven Import” option in OpticsBuilder to expose the OpticStudio equations and import with surfaces created directly from the equations.
