Addressing the needs of engineers and designers in lighting, luminaire and architecture areas, OptisWorks precisely predicts the outcome of complete lighting installations. For lighting specialists, this means saved time and cost throughout the entire luminaire design cycle, from the early concept phase to the production of lighting systems.

OptisWorks from OPTIS is a toolset for optimizing light in any product directly in SOLIDWORKS. The solution enables designers and engineers to simulate and optimize lighting performance, colors, optical effects, lit appearance of their projects in any conditions, in a fully-immersive CAD environment. OptisWorks offers a complete solution from optical design to photometric optimization, through to product visualization, all within one software.

The updated version of OptisWorks includes adjusted ergonomics for an optimal use.

Lighting specialists also need solutions for a faster and easier design and development. With this challenges in mind, OPTIS offers with OptisWorks 2016 new tools and process enhancements. Users can now automatically create new and various optical elements:  using a single model, they can quickly choose between different optical and lighting design options and enhance their prototypes. OptisWorks 2016 also provides a better management of the material properties of the products and parts, and many LEDs and materials types are now available from the OPTIS Library, reducing drastically the development time usually required to design an innovative products: users can test and change them within a simple click.
