RayViz™ is a SOLIDWORKS® add-in for visualizing light rays.
Rayviz™ enables you to apply and save optical properties and trace rays directly in the SOLIDWORKS CAD model. A single model is used by both TracePro® (for ray tracing and optical analysis) and by SOLIDWORKS (for mechanical design and modifying optical properties) to ensure data integrity.
It also adds raytracing functionality in your model by doing a simple ray-trace to verify geometry, visualize rays traced from any surface, and check ray paths. Designers significantly accelerate the product development process without sacrificing performance or functionality due to the easy-to-learn interface and minimal setup time.

How it Works:
Start with SOLIDWORKS 2013 or later to create parts and assemblies.
Then use it to:
- Apply TracePro properties
- Raytrace and visualize rays in SOLIDWORKS to check optical properties, paths and geometry
- Export the model as an oml file for use in TracePro
