Welcome to the
MyZemax Customer Portal

Your hub for everything you need to get the most out of your Zemax products

Supported Forum

The forum gives you the opportunity to engage in discussions with other Zemax software users and Zemax support staff. It's a place to swap ideas and have meaningful conversations around design challenges you face. On our forums, no question is too big or too small. Customers have the freedom to ask product and design-related questions in a no-stress environment and hear from other power users.



The Knowledgebase contains all the information you need to get started with Zemax software, to learn intermediate and advanced techniques, and to troubleshoot common issues. You’ll find tips to install your software, activate your license, and start using Zemax tools. Plus, we offer application-specific examples.
