14 September 2007 Automated transfer of optical tolerances from CAD programs to optical codes
Author Affiliations +
There have been many techniques developed for transferring data from CAD programs to optical codes. These data include geometry data as well as deformation data due to environmental stresses. But little has been done to transfer the opto-mechanical tolerances from the CAD programs to the optical codes, especially the probability distribution functions for the tolerances. This paper discusses the issues involved with such data transfer and describes an example transfer methodology from Sigmetrix's CETOL program to CODE V from Optical Research Associates. The required steps to perform the data transfer will be described, and an example is shown.
