STAR Module - Easily build STOP analysis into your design workflows

Get fast, accurate STOP results from FEA data

Analyze the impact of structural and thermal loads on your optical designs with the OpticStudio Structural, Thermal, Analysis and Results (STAR) module. Extend OpticStudio capabilities to include structural, thermal, and optical performance (STOP) analysis based on finite element analysis (FEA) data sets. Reduce human error and wasted time spent recreating designs by blending and optimizing STOP and OpticStudio design processes into an integrated workflow.
