As lens designers use optical design software to optimize their design, it is important to understand what designs are feasible from a manufacturer's perspective. Kenny Rains covers topics such as the prototyping process, the important information to discuss with suppliers when requesting a quote (e.g., prints, tolerances, required paperwork, and lead time), considerations around materials and coating types, and how to optimize for volume production.

***This presentation premiered during the 2021 Photonics Spectra Conference Optics track. For information on upcoming Photonics Media events, see our event calendar here.
