I am currently doing an optics project with some mechanical simulations.
We are trying to simulate the surface deformation with mechanical design software.
Then input the data to ZEMAX.
If I have a sag data like the attached,
could I input these data to get the surface in ZEMAX? Including radius of curvature and aspherical coefficients.

You can use Grid Sag surface to import data.
Andrey is correct - the Grid Sag will let you input that data directly into OpticStudio as a surface. I have written a series of Knowledgebase articles about the Grid Sag surface. I think you will find the first two articles helpful:
Let us know if you have any other questions about this!
