Ansys Zemax OpticStudio

Ansys Zemax OpticStudio software offers a set of tools for optical lens system designs –  choosing lens type and material and porting designs into 3D models for manufacture. OpticStudio is a program that can build, analyze, and refine designs of optical and illumination systems. Its interface is easy to use, and with a little practice, it allows for rapid design evolution. Most features are chosen by selecting them from tabs or dialogue boxes. Importing and exporting 2D/3D models is straightforward. Many commercial lenses and material libraries are included with the software.
