How does OpticsViewer improve manufacturing?

Speak the same language

OpticsViewer gives manufacturing engineers the ability to load sequential OpticStudio® design files and view without loss of precision or information. The optics design data is available, including design targets and tolerance ranges. Your engineering team can engage in more informed conversations and make better decisions using complete optical design data.

Share your optical designs

Export optical designs into CAD formats, including STEP, IGES, STL, STAT for further optomechanical design, simulation and analysis.


Avoid errors in manufacturing

It is not uncommon for manufacturing engineers to receive incomplete or incorrectly implemented optical drawings. With OpticsViewer, you can generate accurate drawings that meet the standards of your optical manufacturers while maintaining your optical design.

Ensure design meets manufacturing specs

Use system viewers and analysis features to study performance via optical design simulation. Manufacturing engineers can ensure that the optical performance is maintained throughout the manufacturing process.

Fine tune parameters to meet spec

Troubleshoot before you build a physical prototype by adjusting parameters of the optical design to visualize the effect on optical performance. This empowers non-optical engineers to analyze the optical performance

See the impact of changes on cost

Access real-time cost estimates based upon optical lens design data submitted to manufacturers. See the cost impact of lens shape, size, material, coatings, quality, and quantity.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need OpticStudio to purchase OpticsViewer?

OpticsViewer enables non-optical engineers to load native OpticStudio designs. While you don’t need a copy of OpticStudio to run OpticsViewer, OpticsViewer is limited to opening OpticStudio design files.

How does OpticsViewer licensing work?

Do I need to have Internet access to use OpticsViewer? What if I want to work offline while I’m on a business trip?

Do I install OpticsViewer on my computer or is it cloudbased?
