Faster Operations

Manage and explore multiple Material Libraries and add libraries easily to your project for faster simulation setup. Simulation meshing is now 20x faster and local meshing up to 100x faster compared to previous versions.

Faster Speos Operations Plot

Visualize Your Optical Simulation

Speos Live Preview provides you with a 100% true-to-life way to quickly view the same results as those produced with Speos CPU because polarization is now calculated on each impact on transparent surfaces.

Robust Design Geometries

With spread control on TIR Lens for optical lighting designs, you can control the maximum aperture of the beam pattern and define how light is spread from center to edge or edge to center for optical design flexibility.

Expanded Sensor Simulation Capabilities

New dynamic lidar capabilities enable object movement during lidar scanning simulations to evaluate distortion on the raw signal. Scanning and rotating lidar sensor simulations are compatible with Speos HPC and Ansys Cloud. You can achieve more accurate simulations with the Speos lidar definition closer to real lidar.
