Optical components with shapes that are not bound by rotational symmetry and support higher order curves and localized profiles offer unique design challenges. Today's advanced manufacturing methods now enable design engineers to incorporate these complex surfaces into their optical systems. OpticStudio supports more than 20 freeform surface types including: Chebyshev polynomials, Zernike polynomials, XY polynomials, NURBS and Bezier splines.
