Saving ray data ZRD to a file in a loop

Hello together,

I’m trying to save Ray Database ZRD to a file in a loop for each angle in the following script:


for angle, -10, 10, 2
                x = NSDD (1,0,0,0) 
                SETNSCPOSITION 1,2,6,angle
                PATHRAY$ = "Rayfile_" + $Str(angle) + ".ZRD"
                NSTR 1,0,1,1,1,1,1,1,PATHRAY$,"h133",1 
                UPDATE ALL
                PAUSE THREADS


This just a part of my script, and exactly this part, namely the saving of ray database is not working. How can I save it, so I could have a few Ray Database files for different angles and open it later with the Ray Database Viewer? What is wrong here?

Thank you in advance!

Hi pemax310,


This macro works fine for me in a dummy file.

What do you mean when you say it is not working? Are you aware that the files are saved in the same folder as your lens file? Could you share a file that illustrates the issue?

Take care,
