Recently, many research and development are on multi focal plane image for head up display.
It needs to build an optical model to simulate the case below:
- There are two object planes (usually two optical paths);
- Need to for images on one image plane (eye box)
- form two or more virtual images in front of a car.
Usually, the sequential lens editor of zemax opticstudio is set for modeling a system with one object plane and one image plane. Could you any experienced staff tell me how to set such a model for simulating multifocal virtual imaging of Head up display.

To model this in Sequential mode, you will need to create a Multi-Configuration design where you can redefine the object fields and optical paths for each configuration: Using Multi-Configuration Operands to control parameters in a single configuration system – Knowledgebase (zemax.com).
Also, in case it is helpful, there is a very interesting Knowledgebase article on modeling a heads-up-display: Which tools to use when working on a Head-up-Display? – Knowledgebase (zemax.com).
I hope you find this information helpful.
