5. 3D Systems

5. 3D Systems

This course gives a comprehensive overview on how to model 3D systems in OpticStudio. It covers how to handle coordinate changes, how to model mirrors, how to set up multiple configurations for systems with moving parts and how to design off-axis systems such as core-drilled sections of a parent parabola.

About this course

This course includes the following content: 

  • Coordinate breaks and element tilts/decenters
  • Modelling mirrors in OpticStudio
  • Designing a scanning mirror
  • Designing an off-axis parabola
  • Complex pivot points
  • Designing a chain of prism
  • Switching between local and global coordinates

Buying this course individually provides 5-day access to the online training platform.
