Learn how the new optical system file (.osf) format now enables a seamless transition for a CODE V model be opened in LightTools. Streamline product development time with the new and improved interoperability features between CODE V and LightTools, enabling you to easily simulate optical systems that contain imaging and non-imaging components.
The SOLIDWORKS Link Module available in the latest version of LightTools provides enhanced capabilities that speed up the design process. To facilitate a quicker path to optical simulations and grant design teams the ability to set more optical characteristics in the SOLIDWORKS environment, this version features optical property identifiers, ray data source linking, and SOLIDWORKS configuration selection.
LucidShape Version 2022.03 Introduces Advanced Analysis and MacroFocal Enhancements to Simplify Product Development Workflows
The Synopsys LucidDrive tool – part of the LucidShape product family — allows engineers to test automotive headlight models prior to manufacturing with virtual night-driving simulations. The latest LucidDrive release, version 2021.12, offers enhanced features to dynamically validate and refine pixel light headlamp models.
Unique capabilities in LucidShape CAA V5 Based version 2021.06 enable designers to explore design forms and styling options with speed and precision. Read more details about this release.
CODE V Version 11.5, now available, introduces the CODE V Hidden Lens Module, which makes it easy to collaborate with customers, subcontractors, and suppliers while protecting the valuable intellectual property (IP) behind the lens design. The release also expands CODE V’s built-in intelligence with new lens optimization capabilities, enhanced AI-optimized glass selection, and fast evaluations of freeform surface performance.
We are pleased to announce version 2020.12 of Synopsys’ LucidShape automotive lighting design software. In response to a growing demand for reliable surface quality and medium information, this release of LucidShape includes the SmartStart Material Library Module. The module provides ready-to-use optical properties as well as updates and extensions to material and medium definitions. LucidShape v2020.12 also includes enhancements to freeform lens design, human eye vision analysis, and headlight analysis based on Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) guidelines.
Read about the latest version of LightTools, which brings faster optomechanical modeling with SOLIDWORKS, enhanced LiDAR design features, and increased ray tracing speed with distributed simulation support.
