Online optical design and simulation solution provider, 3DOptix, has launched a free, cloud-based optical design and simulation platform that requires no installation and instead runs on a standard browser. The platform provides remote access to a virtual lab with optomechanics, lasers and detectors. Both professionals and students can run an optical simulation with off-the-shelf optical components from leading vendors or any customized optical elements.
The optical design and simulation platform was developed from a deep need to reduce the multiple trial and error iteration in the lab among scientists, researchers and engineers in the optics community.
Beta Platform Opened
Currently, the beta platform has about 1,000 users, more than 20,000 optical elements from 15 different vendors available in the database and off-the-shelf optomechanics with built-in mechanical functionalities. All products are ready for simulation and mounting. Once the optical design has gone through the simulation phase, the implementation in the lab becomes straightforward and easy with a simulated optomechanical blueprint. Additionally, users can generate 2D sketches for an article or a paper directly from the platform.
Commenting on the release, Gil Noy, 3DOptix CEO, stated that 3DOptix is changing the way scientists, researchers, and engineers design and simulate the implementation of optical prototypes and setups. With the newly released platform, users can run a complete optical simulation in a short time and share the design with their friends and colleagues, and make smart procurement decision before they go into the lab.
