Real world uses of Photopia
Use Photopia to design and analyize UV systems directly in SOLIDWORKS and Rhinoceros
Photopia™ is the perfect optical design software for your UV illumination optical designs. Whether you are designing a UVC air or water purification system or creating a UV light source for UV curing in adhesives or printing, Photopia will help you design the best UV optical system in the shortest amount of time.
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®.
The Photopia Library includes lamp and material data for UV applications, as well as the ability to add custom light sources and material properties. The Parametric Optical Design Tools help you create and optimize reflector and lens shapes for controlling the irradiation pattern of your UV device to optimize the energy onto your target surface.
Reflector or lens optics can be created with Photopia's Parametric Optical Design Tools (PODT) to properly irradiate your target area, whether you need a concentrated beam or an even spread over a desired width at a specific distance.

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.
In order to provide a quote please contact us and we'll either provide one or put you in contact with the correct representative.
