TracePro

Lambda Research to Show at Optatec 2014

Littleton, MA, USA – April 8, 2014 – Lambda Research Corporation, a leading designer and publisher of illumination and optical design software, announces its participation in the Optatec Trade Show, Booth J34, from May 20 – 22, 2014 in Frankfurt, Germany.

TracePro®, our flagship product, is a powerful and sophisticated optical and illumination simulation and design software. TracePro streamlines the prototype-to-manufacturing process by combining an intuitive 3D CAD interface, advanced utilities, and seamless interoperability with other mechanical design programs. The latest release, TracePro v7.4, includes new features, such as improved photorealistic rendering using photon mapping to depict scenes, sources, light pipes, and instrument panels. TracePro’s unique rendering process is especially effective where multiple bounces occur in light pipes, lenses, and standard optical components, as well as for LED source color rendition. Our v7.4 release also features a new repetitive tile feature to simulate the latest edge mounted DMD chips and an automated setup to simulate uniaxial solar tracking collectors in our solar emulator utility.

At Optatec, the company will be offering live demonstrations of TracePro. Optical and design engineers attending the show are encouraged to bring their latest projects and experience a real-time demo using their designs. OSLO® (Optics Software for Layout and Optimization), the world renowned lens design tool, will also be featured at the show. OSLO enables designers and researchers to determine the optimal sizes and shapes of the components in optical systems. In addition to classical lens design features, OSLO combines advanced ray tracing, analysis, and optimization methods with a high-speed macro language to solve a wide variety of new problems in optical design. OSLO has the capability of modeling a broad range of reflective, refractive, and diffractive components.

Show attendees can schedule a personal meeting to discuss their design projects or receive a hands-on demo of TracePro by emailing [email protected] For more information on what Lambda Research Corporation has to offer, visit their web site, or Ask an Optics Expert to have a technical representative assist you directly.
