Optical Design Features


Intuitive Lens Design and
Non-Sequential Optical Design

Click and Drag optics and elements directly in your design editor. Use standard Optical Table, edit sequentially or non-sequentially. Leverage non-sequential optical design techniques in standard lens designs without having to deal with complexity inherent with non-sequential design.


Interactive Optimization

Watch plots and various metrics update in semi-realtime as your design optimizes with KostaCLOUD's optimization engine. The example below shows how Longitudinal aberration, Axial color (Chromatic defocus) and various other metrics for a doublet evolve through the optimization process.


Simplified Tolerancing

Work in full non-sequential coordinate spaces as you would in real-life to ensure manufacturability. Utilize KostaCLOUD's realistic solid modeling to ensure manufacturability where sequential methods fail to provide accurate results.


Design For manufacture with ISO10110

Easily specify ISO requirements for manufacturability, annotate sheets for surface finish, sag functions, etc.
