Version 3.3.6 of TracePro illumination design software, compatible with TracePro Bridge for SolidWorks, has been released by Lambda Research Corp. The new release is required to open and understand native TracePro files created within SolidWorks. Its 3D kernel has been updated to ACIS R14 service pack 9 to ensure compatibility among SolidWorks 2006, TracePro Bridge for SolidWorks and TracePro 3.3.6. TracePro Bridge for SolidWorks customers can apply TracePro properties to their Solid-Works parts and assemblies and save this data directly to the native SolidWorks files or as TracePro files. The models then can be opened in the new release for ray tracing and analysis. Improvements include updated documentation for macro commands, DXF exporting and RGB color analysis.
