Optical product teams need an easier and faster way to get from design to manufacture. LensMechanix is the answer. LensMechanix is software for mechanical engineers who design housing for optical products in CAD.
With LensMechanix, mechanical engineers can access the complete design data of optical systems designed in OpticStudio® and start designing the mechanical envelope right away. They can then validate their mechanical design and fix issues before building a physical prototype.

LensMechanix simplifies communication and reduces the back and forth between mechanical and optical engineers.
A single LensMechanix license works with both Creo and SOLIDWORKS.

Thousands of organizations use our software to develop cutting-edge optical products. Here’s what a few of them have to say.
"LensMechanix is going to help us give our customers better products faster, and drive growth for Global Surgical. We’ve just scratched the surface of what it can do."
Tim Stiefferman, Mechanical Engineer
"LensMechanix makes my life easier. I used to have to create the parts from scratch. Now that I have actual lens data, my optical engineer doesn’t have to generate tables and I don’t have to generate part files."
Harold Brunt, Vice President and Mechanical Engineer
"Before LensMechanix, we guessed a lot. We would manage stray light in fairly crude ways, with paint or photo-etched apertures or a host of secondary components. Not getting it right the first time is a huge expense."
Dave Rook, Mechanical Engineer
"LensMechanix has the potential of cutting the time loss due to a more reliable file exchange and closing the gap between optical simulation and reality, allowing for a validation before prototype."
Maintain design fidelity
Mechanical engineers access all the optical data defined by the optical engineer with just one file. There is no need to share STEP files, spreadsheets, or drawings.
Load the entire optical design, including lens materials, positions, sources, wavelengths, and detectors into LensMechanix as CAD parts
Access the same OpticStudio ray trace engine to ensure the quality of optical performance throughout the design process.
Shorten time to market
LensMechanix saves time by reducing the iterations between optical and mechanical design that happen before getting to a final design. With less back and forth, teams can get designs to market faster.
Minimize guesswork and make informed design decisions
Reduce design iterations
Mechanical engineers can easily see the impact of mechanical components on optical performance. This enables them to find any errors in the design before they build a physical prototype
Simulate how rays travel through the optomechanical system
Pinpoint problems within a familiar Creo or SOLIDWORKS environment
Global Surgical cuts product development time in half with Zemax Virtual Prototyping
Imagine shaving 106 days from your product development cycle, saving your team time and money and freeing it up to move on to the next innovation. That’s exactly what client Global Surgical experienced when it used Zemax Virtual Prototyping to redesign a set of symmetric eyepieces for its A-Series dental microscope. Read the case study to get inspired.
