This article describes the process of using OpticsBuilder to automate the creation of lens drawings by creating a custom drawing template in SolidWorks. OpticsBuilder can create automated ISO 10110 compliant drawings of circular lenses with the Generate Lens Drawing tool. This tool generates a drawing for a lens with dimensions and material data filled out using custom properties imported with the ZBD file format. The drawing tool executes a macro that handles number formatting, picture and table placement, lens dimensioning, and auto-population of lens data.
