Lambda Research Corporation is a single-source solution for optical lighting and illumination design software and hardware. Lambda sells its own TracePro® 3D opto-mechanical software differentiated by its ease-of-use, CAD interface, and accuracy in illumination and lighting design, as well as the TracePro Bridge™, a fully integrated, seamless add-in for SolidWorks®.
TracePro Bridge for SolidWorks is an Add-In to SW, allowing users to incorporate optical components directly into SW models. The opto-mechanical models are subsequently exported to TracePro, ready for optical ray tracing and analysis. TracePro Bridge enables ability to assign and save TracePro optical properties to the SW model, the capability to view properties of objects and surfaces comprising the model, and direct and efficient transition of models from mechanical design to optical analysis software.
