Overview: The transition to LED Solid State lighting combined with an ever shorter product development cycle has engineers and designers searching for better ways to design products. Illumination design software can shorten the product design cycle by quickly and accurately modeling real world product performance, eliminating the need for costly and time consuming physical prototypes.
Join us for the LED Magazine webcast; Speed Product Development with innovative Illumination Design software. During this webcast you will learn:
• How powerful light simulation software streamlines the product development process
• How modern light source models are constructed and why they are important for accurate product simulation and design
• How to use light source models, and ray sets in illumination designs
• How to display and analyze illumination performance
