Real world uses of Photopia
Use Photopia to design and analyize daylighting systems directly in SOLIDWORKS and Rhinoceros
Photopia™ is the perfect optical design software for your solar and daylighting optical design projects. Photopia is used for designing complex daylighting systems, including light shelves, skylights, tubular daylight devices, solar tracking skylights and a range of other devices. Photopia has also been used in solar applications, including PV concentrators and Stirling engine concentrators.
Photopia's library contains a wide range of materials commonly used in daylight devices as well as source models for the standard CIE sky conditions, making it easy to determine your device's performance for any time of the year for any location.
Photopia is a plug-in for both SOLIDWORKS® and Rhino®. If you are not using SOLIDWORKS, then Photopia for Rhino is the best option since it includes a full seat of Rhino and allows you to work with IGES or STEP CAD models from any other program, including CATIA®, SOLIDWORKS®, AutoCAD®, Creo Parametricngineer CREO®, SolidEdge®, and Inventor®.
✔ Solar simulator using reflector optics.
✔ PV concentrator reflector and lenses.
✔ Stirling engine concentrator reflector.
✔ Lightshelf performance study.
✔ Simulation of annual performance data.
✔ Tubular daylight devices.
✔ Traditional skylight devices.
The first step to evaluating if Photopia is a good fit for your company is to schedule an online demonstration where one of our expert optical engineers will discuss your projects and give you a walkthrough of the software.
After the online demo, we're happy to provide a 2 week trial license so that you can use the software on your own projects or show it to others in your office.
We sell direct and through a network of international representatives.
