Breault Research Organization (BRO) has launched the new APEX optical engineering software, which is the first part of a long and multi-phase plan to develop a concurrent engineering software framework. The APEX software is a stand-alone application, which optimizes user’s interaction with software tools for optical-engineering through integration with the SolidWorks 3D-modeling environment.
BRO’s Advanced Systems Analysis Program (ASAP) is widely regarded as a standard in the optical engineering software industry. The ASAP non-sequential ray-tracing engine is center of the APEX software. The program facilitates designing and analyzing of even complex illumination and optical systems with a simple workflow. The APEX software allows optical designers to easily study, create, analyze, and design all in the same environment.
Kevin Garcia, the CEO of BRO, said that with the APEX, the company has fulfilled the users’ requirement of a user-friendly CAD interface in combination with ASAP. APEX offers users an integrated software environment that does not require translating or linking of two different programs. The Software is tailor-made for meeting the current requirements of R&D groups in the engineering sector.
