Photon Engineering, LLC announces FRED™ Turbo and FRED™ 7.0.0

FRED is an advanced 3D CAD optical engineering software program capable of simulating the propagation of light through virtually any optical/illumination system.

Wessling, (PresseBox) - Photon Engineering, LLC announces Release 7.0.0 of its optical engineering software FRED 7.x series. FRED is an advanced 3D CAD optical engineering software program capable of simulating the propagation of light through virtually any optical/illumination system.

The FRED 7.0.0 release features several major enhancements to FRED’s raytracing speed and modeling capabilities. FRED 7.0.0’s multi-threaded raytracing is substantially faster tracing imported CAD geometry and large surface count systems through enhancements to the multi-threaded memory manager. Raytrace speeds on quad and dual-quad core computers now average 3X and 6X respectively when compared with single CPU raytracing. Further improvements include the direct import of “Optilayer” thin film prescriptions, a new embedded scripts folder that embeds directly into the FRED’s document and the capability to define 12 different dispersion formulas to define custom glass materials.
