LucidShape CAA V5 Based is an interactive tool that allows designers to perform optical simulations and analyses of automotive lighting products within the CATIA V5 environment. Because of the tool’s complete integration within CATIA V5, designers who are familiar with CATIA can easily leverage LucidShape’s powerful features to produce, with a minimal learning curve, automotive lighting products that meet performance, styling, visual branding and regulatory requirements.
Geometry Creation and Import
To build your automotive lighting model in LucidShape CAA V5 Based, you can use CATIA-generated geometry or import geometry from LucidShape. You can then choose various sources and sensors, assign, create and edit materials and media using a materials library, and define simulation settings and analysis preferences.
Easy Visual Navigation of Complex Models
Model navigation and management is highly efficient with the software’s specification tree structure, which keeps all automotive lighting components organized and accessible from a single location. For example, products have a tree section that shows all LucidShape-specific elements in an entire product assembly.
Rapid Design Verification
The software can rapidly and accurately ray trace part-level models or product-level assemblies using both tessellated and NURBS simulation methods, for the most comprehensive CATIA-based optical simulations currently available. You can run a simulation on one part while you continue to work on another part in the same project.
The software also supports multi-core processing and GPU ray tracing (for tessellated mode only) to further accelerate simulations.
Full Suite of Analysis Tools
The software delivers a comprehensive spectrum of UV data analysis tools, as well as bird’s eye and driver’s views. A large set of test point standards are included to ensure that your system meets both industry regulations and company specifications. Specific analysis tools include:
You can easily export your model to LucidShape to perform other tasks, including simulation and visualization of lit and unlit appearance.
