TracePro version 4.0, optical modeling, design and analysis software, developed by Lambda Research is available in Australia from Hearne Scientific Software.
TracePro 4.0 delivers a number of powerful new capabilities addressing the optical design challenges in a variety of industrial applications. The new capabilities include fluorescence modeling for life sciences, photorealistic rendering for accurate visualisation of illumination designs and enhanced modeling of 3D surface textures utilised in the design of LCD backlight displays, projection systems, lightpipes and microarrays.
Additionally, TracePro users will benefit from a significant increase in ray tracing speed, major enhancements in the user interface and improved translators for OSLO, Zemax and Code V, enabling an easy import of lens designs to TracePro.
TracePro 4.0 is complemented with an optimisation module for automation of the complex trial and error design steps when finding optimal luminaire, light guide and reflector geometry for maximum light intensity and uniformity.
A new release of TracePro Bridge for SolidWorks, a seamless interface between mechanical design and optical analysis is being released simultaneously, demonstrating Lambda Research’s commitment to software interoperability and efficient management of optical and mechanical design workflows.
The new release of TracePro Bridge addresses more complex models and offers users an expanded database of optical material and surface properties.
