Evolution of Winlens3D Basic

When it comes to Winlens 3D Basic, designers, students, and optical engineers enjoy the Winlens3D optical design package that offers analysis tools and thoughtful design. People will get hand optimization sliders, audit trail facilities, multiple copies of tables or graphs, and zoom-friendly graphics with the Winlens 3D Basic.

When people talk about a significant enhancement to Winlens Plus, they will be talking about Winlens 3D Basic. Even without any planes of symmetry, Winlens can now model systems. In all of the three axes, users can decenter and tilt individual surfaces. And when they define mirror surfaces as a fold, it will have dual power to rotate the mechanical reference, even if it is compound or simple. They can have the local reference axis directions to offset the tilt center.

Operators can also decenter or tilt the component groups and the fundamental components. The following element’s global location remains intact with the group/compound T&D, by default. As such, people can find it quite easy to create and model scanners and their movements. They can also assess the manufacturing errors impact.

Users may use coordinate breaks to change the reference axis’ direction when they do not use fold mirrors. As one of the whole range of types, they have added a new prism object. Essentially, it can be complicated to model prisms. When they have a chosen type, the wizard can collect vital parameters and set up the required surfaces.

Qioptiq displays its prisms in a unique prism database window. With that, people can use them in full designs when they reference their part number. They can then alter T&D by setting up adjusters on the module, group, component, or surface. There are also various enhancements to several analysis tools to assess the new systems:

  • A new 3D wavefront is in existence, with several display options and real-time rotation
  • A new global coordinate table is available
  • There is no assumption about symmetry from graphs
  • Users will now get lens drawing in a solid model or wire-frame when showing 3D systems, with rotation in real-time controlled by sliders

Tilted Modules, Groups, and Components

Operators may use the system data editor tilt tab to tilt the whole modules, component groups, or components. By default, when people decenter or tilt any module, group, or component, it will not affect the following components’ global position.

Tilt Options

At the end of each tilted module, group/component, winlens 3D Basic works to realign the reference axis. Users can click the relevant cells in the options box to alter this option for any module, group, or component. Operators must be aware that the non-default option is similar to inserting and placing a coordinate break at the start of the item. They can even change application order for dissenters and tilts.

Rotated System

Users can use the toolbar slider beneath the system data editor to rotate the whole glassworks. The object’s points are on the y-axis. Thus, rotating the optics. With that, it is quite easy to sample or probe another azimuth. People will then see differences in the various analysis tables and graphs when their design is not a centered system folded version.
