Topic: Utilizing a custom CAD component within Sequential Mode in OpticStudio
Live demo and Q&A: August 24th, 8am - 9am PDT (See the attachments for a calendar invite)
Ask an Engineer is a once-monthly live event. The meeting is a small, informal gathering wherein our technical staff will take the time to educate and answer questions on the featured topic. We highly encourage new users - especially students - to join and learn a bit more about the software!
Take a look at the topic and resources below, then join us on August 24th to connect with our engineer.

It is often the case that our optical systems utilize unique parts or objects designed in-house. For example, a vehicle’s windshield shape (an important component of a HUD system) may be proprietary information that we would need to include within our optical model to have a full understanding of the system performance. For this reason, the ability to import CAD objects into OpticStudio is very important.
OpticStudio offers various approaches for importing CAD components in sequential design. I'm excited to show you different solutions and answer questions about that in this month’s "Ask an Engineer" event. Please ask your questions about importing, fitting, and optimizing CAD parts in sequential design.
There are several approaches one can take to complete this task. It may be useful to familiarize yourself with two of them. Check out the Knowledgebase articles below to get started:
