Photopia™ 2017 Release
Photopia 2017 and Photopia for SOLIDWORKS® 2017 expand support for anisotropic materials to transmissive materials, allowing simulations with complex diffusers.
Photopia for SOLIDWORKS 2017 can be used in German, Simplified and Traditional Chinese, Japanese, French and Brazilian Portuguese. This allows our customers to work in the language they are most comfortable using.
Photopia 2017 also contains the first release of our new Photometric Reports software, which are fully configurable candela polar plots.
