OPTIS and Dassault Systèmes

After rigorous testing to pass the validation and certification phases, OPTIS received the ‘Gold Partner’ certification from SolidWorks in 2002, for its single-window integration of SPEOS  (previously know as OptisWorks). This tight partnership represents the highest level of integration in SolidWorks, and makes OPTIS the exclusive provider of integrated photometric and optical solutions to SOLIDWORKS users. OPTIS and Dassault Systèmes have further deepened this partnership in 2003, with SPEOS CAA V5 Based being 100% integrated in CATIA V5. OPTIS has then been able to address the large groups using CATIA V5, notably in the automotive, aerospace and electronics industries.


The goal of the integration of SPEOS in these software is to bring light simulation to the CAD/CAM/CAE world. SPEOS enables users, mechanical designers, project leaders, and engineers to analyze the effect of light- light levels, distribution, photometric performance, colorimetry analysis, compliance with standards - directly within their CAD parts and assemblies. All features fully communicate with the CAD software, and allow to quickly check many design iterations in order to better understand and optimize a product. SPEOS comes with a very intuitive material editor and a comprehensive set of libraries of optically measured materials “ready to apply” to any CAD model. All parts are then physically defined for a very accurate and realistic simulation of the light's propagation. OPTIS bring a real benefit to CAD users, who can handle optics, thermal, and mechanical issues within a single interface. The interactivity obtained from the perfect integration allows a better understanding of optical effects in any system.
