LightTools® 6.2 illumination design and analysis software from Optical Research Associates (Pasadena, CA) is for applications ranging from LEDs to displays and luminaires. A backward ray tracing capability reduces the time needed to design and analyze systems such as sources, luminaires, and projectors. The LightTools SolidWorks® Link Module reduces design cycle time by enabling users to build 3D models in SolidWorks and import them into LightTools, where they can assign optical properties, optimize the design, and update the SolidWorks model.
