January Webinars

Troubleshoot your optomechanical designs using improved features in LensMechanix
  Wednesday, January 11, 2016 7:30-8:30 AM PST

In this webinar, we will step through how to use updated features in LensMechanix to troubleshoot your designs in SOLIDWORKS. You will learn how to: 

•    Use ray animation to identify the mechanical components that are affecting optical performance 
•    Increase the resolution of a surface power analysis to view the power on any surface more effectively 
•    Update all sources, optical components, and detectors in an OpticStudio file using the Update OpticStudio file tool when a change has been made to the optical design 
•    Create and share a report of the results from the Optical Performance Summary 


Simulating image quality in OpticStudio
  Wednesday, January 18, 2016 7:30-8:30 AM PST

OpticStudio includes tools to produce photorealistic images of object scenes including the effects of diffraction, aberrations, distortion, relative illumination, image orientation and polarization. This webinar explains how to simulate the performance of imaging systems with the following OpticStudio features: 

· Image Simulation 
· Geometric Image Analysis 
· Light Source Analysis 
· Relative Illumination


Accessing the Ray Database with the ZOS-API using MATLAB
  Wednesday, January 25, 2016 7:30-8:30 AM PST

This webinar will demonstrate how to utilize the Zemax OpticStudio Application Programming Interface (ZOS-API) for accessing the Ray Database (ZRD). We will show you the necessary methods and some tips&tricks on how to handle rays and segments with the ZRD Reader.
