The field of application of aspheric optics is steadily expanding. Aspheric surfaces can be found in photographic optics, astronomical optics and other optical systems that are now at the forefront of the optical science. The production of elements with aspherical surfaces is a very long and time-consuming process both from the design and the technological points of view. In CAE-systems the information is placed in accordance with the developed dialog interface and the traditions of a country / programming language and others. These data are specific for each program, which greatly complicates the processing of data. The purpose of this work is to investigate the possibility to automate the production of design documentation for optical elements with aspherical surfaces in accordance with international ISO standards. It was decided to develop an application software package, embedded in the CAD-environment. The presented software package solves the problem of producing design documentation based on the data from such CAE-systems as OPAL PC and Zemax. The methodical material, developed during the research, contains information about work with parameters of aspherical surfaces in the CAE-systems indicated above. The design documentation must be complied in accordance with Russian standards and ISO 10110-12: 2007. Dialog windows of the software request all the data necessary for the release of drawings. The report presents different approaches of algorithmic solutions of the tasks, the dialog interface and examples of document automatic execution results.
