TracePro Bridge for SolidWorks
Nov 2005
Lambda Research Corp.Request Info
For Putting Optical Components, Light Sources
and Sensors Directly in Mechanical Models
LITTLETON, Mass., Nov. 28 -- Optical software developer Lambda Research Corp. introduces an add-in to the mechanical design software SolidWorks. This new product, TracePro Bridge for SolidWorks, has an anticipated release date of January 2006, but Lambda Research is taking orders now. TracePro Bridge allows users to include optical components, light sources, detectors, sensors and optical effects and properties directly in mechanical models within SolidWorks. The completed optomechanical models are subsequently exported to TracePro, an optical simulation software package, ready for optical ray tracing and analysis.

TracePro Bridge for SolidWorks will enable the following functions: the ability to assign and save TracePro optical properties to the model within SolidWorks, the capability to view properties of objects and surfaces comprising the model and the smooth, direct and efficient transition of models from mechanical design to optical analysis software.

“TracePro Bridge for SolidWorks will provide the link to analyze the effects of light on sophisticated mechanical structures created in SolidWorks,” said Rich Hassler, executive vice president of Lambda Research Corp. “The bridge will allow engineers to utilize the geometric modeling capabilities of SolidWorks and the powerful ray tracing of TracePro in a synergistic way. Engineers will explore larger design spaces more quickly with the coupling of these two powerful software tools.”
