New to Zemax…

 

Optics manufacturers typically describe toroidal mirrors in terms of their two radii of curvature, say R_v and R_h. In sequential mode, how does one model one of these based on the two supplied radii of curvature?

 

Thanks

Try using a Torodial surface, with one radius specified by the “Radius” parameter, and the second radius by Parameter 1 (Radius of Rotation).
