Lambda Research Announces TracePro® Version 7.6 Update Release

Lambda Research Corporation, a leading designer and publisher of illumination and optical design software, announces the current release of the latest version of its flagship TracePro software.

The latest release, TracePro v7.6, includes the capability to create repetitive features on curved surfaces, new diffuser catalogs, new macro editor and a simplified menu structure that broadens the program’s capabilities. The BrightView, Bayer Makrolon®, and Luminit diffuser sheet catalogs are now available as surface property catalogs in the TracePro v7.6 optical properties database. TracePro’s Source Editor has been expanded to operate on Grid and File sources. The incident ray table now includes Optical Path Length information for each ray. The solar utility has been enhanced to add multiple solar tracking solutions and to calculate turbidity over a period.

TracePro’s revised texture utility creates any type of repetitive geometry feature and textures on curved surfaces. This new feature is perfect for modeling curved displays especially ones using scattering features. The solid geometry created is fully customizable allowing optimization by the utility to create uniform displays. Users can specify spacing, feature type and cell layout using the utility to texture any curved or planar object.

A new Scheme macro editor has been added, Notepad++© to provide users with a powerful editing component. This new editor provides Scheme macro syntax highlighting, multi-document support, auto-completion, and macro launch directly from the editor.
Additionally, TracePro’s menu structure has been simplified to create a more logical workflow by moving utilities into the correct menu placements. Menus have been kept one level deep to create a simple menu structure creating the easiest to use optical product on the market today.

TracePro offers the most powerful and sophisticated illumination design software available for LED implementation into lamps and luminaires. TracePro streamlines the prototype-to-manufacturing process by combining an intuitive 3D CAD interface, superior ray-tracing performance, advanced utilities, and seamless interoperability with other mechanical design programs.
