Littleton, Massachusetts – July 20, 2012 – TracePro 7.2 is the latest release of Lambda’s award-winning illumination and optical analysis software. This release features the first fully interactive 3D optimizer specifically designed to increase productivity by giving the user complete control of the optimization process. The new 3D optimizer features a sketch utility to quickly create any 3D symmetric or asymmetric CAD geometry, interactive ray tracing for design verification, and digitization of target functions. This new optimizer drastically reduces design time, increases productivity, while at the same time giving the user complete control of the optimization process.

TracePro 7.2 also features a new DMD RepTile® geometry to simulate DMD chips to design projection TVs and digital cinema projectors. Each mirror segment can be oriented individually to simulate scenes using this new feature.

This release also features new material property catalogs from several different vendors (Kopp, Umicore, Vitron) and added exotic materials in our Crystals, Metals, Liquids, and Plastic catalogs.
