Horticulture Optical Design Software

Photopia optical design software is well suited to designing, analyzing and optimizing horticulture and grow light optical designs.

Photopia's direct integration into SOLIDWORKS, native support for photon flux and PAR flux output and parametric optical design tools makes Photopia your best optical design software for aviation and aerospace lighting systems.

The source and material library is filled with over 2000 items, so you'll find a complete full-color model of the LED you're using along with material properties measured with care in our in-house lab. No more guessing or needing to create your own source and material models, we've done the hard work for you.

Parametric Optical Design Tools

Photopia includes a set of Parametric Optical Design Tools which allow you to create an optimize optical geometry directly inside your CAD model based on relevant optical parameters.

These tools make it very easy to create reflectors or lenses that put the energy exactly where you need it, ensuring the highest PAR flux on your growing surfaces with minimal spill light.

More details about all of the features of Photopia are on our general Photopia page.
