The latest release of LensMechanix includes several important capabilities. These build on the capabilities added during the past year, which were driven largely by customer feedback. LensMechanix users can now:
Load nearly any optical design in OpticStudio as native SOLIDWORKS parts
LensMechanix now supports all non-sequential components that are available in OpticStudio. You can load nearly any sequential or non-sequential design into SOLIDWORKS as native components.

Create simple or complex optical components using SOLIDWORKS sketch tools
You can now convert any mechanical component that you create in SOLIDWORKS to an optical component. This gives you the freedom to analyze the optical performance of any shape.
Display positional tolerance data for optical components in LensMechanix
Use tolerances defined in non-sequential OpticStudio files to design mechanical components.
Collaborate with optical engineers by sending complete designs back and forth without losing data or converting file formats
LensMechanix can now save mechanical components in the OpticStudio output file as SOLIDWORKS parts, completely eliminating STEP files from your workflow. Optical and mechanical engineers can work on the complete assembly as native components in either SOLIDWORKS or OpticStudio.
Experience a product that meets the rigorous standards of the SOLIDWORKS Certified Gold Partner Program
As a SOLIDWORKS Certified Gold Partner Product, LensMechanix demonstrates that it meets the highest expectations for quality, functionality, performance, and integration with the SOLIDWORKS platform. LensMechanix is the only Certified Gold Partner product that is specifically designed for the needs of optomechanical engineers.
Incorporate design changes in an optical system simply by updating your file
With a few clicks, you can now update the entire optical design file when there is a change in the optical design, without having to design mechanical components from the beginning.
Catch and correct errors in your designs quickly with automated ray filters
Correct mechanical issues quickly by isolating and displaying rays that show where your mechanical components are causing performance issues.
See light propagate through your designs in slow motion using ray animation
Watch rays travel through your optomechanical system by animating them. As the rays travel from the sources through the system, you can pinpoint and correct stray light issues quickly.
Load multi-configuration designs from OpticStudio into multi-configurations in SOLIDWORKS
Design mechanical components around multiple configurations that are created in a non-sequential optical design.
Generate ISO 10110 drawings for optical components in SOLIDWORKS
Move to manufacturing faster by generating 2D SOLIDWORKS drawings for standard and aspheric lenses. These drawings help you communicate how your design should be manufactured.
