Abstract

In the creation of an optomechanical system, the optical engineer needs to be able to share his finalized optical design with the mechanical engineer so that the mechanical geometry around the assembly can be built and a virtual prototype of the full optomechanical design can be created.

In this article, we will show how the Export CAD File tool can be used for this purpose in the case of a singlet lens and explain some of the export settings and tool limitations.
