Abstract
Opto-mechanical systems which are entered into APART for straylight analysis frequently start out as models on a mechanical drafting program such as ANVIL. A translator, described elsewhere, has been coded in FORTRAN which will create the commands for a program one input file in APART based on an existing mechanical model in ANVIL. Having established this link, it is desirable to transfer the resulting opto-mechanical model to a personal computer (PC) for the purpose of report generation. Even more interesting is the ability to modify this model on the PC or to originate a completely new model on the PC for uplink to ANVIL. Using the program CADMOVER, we have effected two way transfers between a VAX computer and an Apple MacIntosh computer. Examples of this activity are provided.
