TracePro® Spring US Training Courses 2020

Lambda Research Corporation is excited to invite you to one of our extensive training courses on our TracePro product.

Each course is one day in length and will focus on a variety of topics. We strongly recommend students take or have taken TracePro 101 before moving on to the more advanced courses. A student taking all 3 days of training will leave with an extensive knowledge of TracePro and its features and capabilities, and be ready to use that knowledge on a daily basis.

Please contact us is you have any questions on these courses.

Please note that the TracePro 101 course should be considered a pre-requisite for the second and third days of training.

TracePro 101

September 22nd, 2020

Day 1: 

  • Introduction to TracePro
  • Importing geometry and creating geometry in TracePro
  • Applying properties
  • Defining sources
  • Raytracing
  • Analyzing the results

This class is an excellent introduction to TracePro. If you are new to TracePro or if you are an experienced TracePro user, you will certainly find this course informative and helpful. We will start at the beginning by building models in TracePro, importing CAD models, applying properties, defining light sources, running raytraces, and analyzing the results. We will cover many of the features in TracePro. Numerous examples will be used in this class, including luminaires, lenses, light guides, and displays. At the end of this class attendees will have a good working knowledge of TracePro that they can take back to their workplace.

Day 2:

  • Making custom properties in TracePro
  • Stray light analysis
  • Importance Sampling
  • The Scheme macro language and macro programming in TracePro

This course will introduce users to the more advanced features such as making custom properties, the Scheme macro language, and stray light analysis. We will introduce concepts such as the property editors, the tools in TracePro for making new properties, importance sampling, BSDF, and the macro recorder. Once again, numerous examples will be used throughout the day. TracePro 101 or a good working knowledge of TracePro should be considered a prerequisite for this course.

Optimization with TracePro

September 24th, 2020

Day 3:

  • Introduction to the TracePro Interactive Optimizer
  • Principles of optimization
  • Creating geometry in the optimizer
  • Defining variables
  • Defining optimization operands or goals

This course introduces students to the Interactive Optimizer in TracePro. We will discuss the theory and operation of the optimizer in TracePro. We will also cover setting up an optimization as well as the parameters necessary for this process. Numerous examples will be used throughout the day, including lenses, reflectors, and light guides. After this course students will have a good working knowledge of the optimizer and be able to apply it to their own applications and problems. TracePro 101 or a good working knowledge of TracePro should be considered a prerequisite for this course.
