Charlevoix Design uses simulation software to evaluate optical performance of a lamp design before incurring prototype & production costs. The software we use not only provides crucial feedback on a design, but also has powerful tools to efficiently create optical components directly in the simulation environment.
Simulation software: LucidShape, TracePro, Visual, Dialux, Maxwell Render
Real world conditions such as positioning tolerances, source binning, and tooling artifacts, and LED flux binning are taken into account to minimize inaccuracies. Additionally, proper safety factors and margins ensure the best chance of meeting a design’s goals.
