Electroforming as a method of producing metal optics offers some advantages and disadvantages when compared to optics produced by mechanical forming methods or conventional grinding and polishing techniques. These advantages and disadvantages are discussed together with various methods of tooling for electroforming. Some key process control procedures are described for control of optical accuracy.
