ASAP NextGen Features
ASAP NextGen is a redefining moment in the history of the ASAP program
A new, easy-to-use interface allowing complete definition of an optical system including geometry with optical properties, sources, ray tracing and analysis in a CAD-like manager and graphical user interface. Systems can be run directly from the Optics Manager without the need for scripts.
Automatic Script Creation
Ability to automatically generate INR script directly from the Optics Manager for further editing/manipulation in the Script Editor. Scripts are separate and independent of the Optics Manager system definition.
Persistent 3D Viewer
A new 3D viewer that will automatically update when any new surface, optical component, or imported CAD geometry is added to the ASAP Optics Manager.
A complete redesign of the ASAP Builder that provides quick and easy access to command menus for ASAP scripting. This new interface is integrated directly into the script editor along with ASAP Help.
Parallel + Remote Distributed Processing
The ability to automatically run parallel processes for ray tracing and analysis on all cores on a local PC as well as all cores on all Remote PC's. The number of cores used can be user-defined to optimize ray tracing efficiency.
Alternate Scripting Languages
New support for C# as an alternate scripting language with built-in code parsing and debugging. Enhanced support for Iron Python and Visual Basic. Provides extensible code base for these languages.
Major Improvements to Existing Features
New, extensible Script Editor with an improved user interface and more control over script syntax, coloring, and keyboard shortcuts. Provides one-click access to new Optimization and Macro Managers and $SCR Editor.
New optimization interface integrated directly into the Script Editor. Automatically parses INR script to find defined variables for use as Design Variables, Constraints, or Merit Functions. Optimization conditions and visual output at run-time are visible within the INR script window.
New $SCR Editor acts as a simple two-way forms editor with one-click access to text, integer, and floating point input. Editor automatically generates corresponding ASAP script and updates to script are automatically seen in the $SCR form.
New feature that automatically parses ASAP scripts to find macro code which is presented as a list. One-click access to the list allows direct editing of each macro and changes are automatically updated to the Script Editor.
