LightForge Rapid Fabrication Service
LightForge™ is a low-cost rapid fabrication service giving optical designers the ability to create innovative new freeform surfaces, test new ideas and verify designs for production without incurring expensive upfront engineering charges and lengthy prototyping lead times.
Uploading a design to the LightForge™ web site could not be simpler. The optical surface must be specified on a 10um grid for x, y and z. After submitting the design, the LightForge™ web site runs a design rule check and if accepted, your optic will be ready in as little as 2 weeks. LightForge™ can be used to create a wide range of refractive optical elements, from beam transformers and microlens arrays, to unique components such as diode laser smile correctors and wavefront compensator phaseplates, to completely custom surface shapes.
The LightForge™ fabrication service can be used for rapid prototyping as a precursor to volume production, or for one-off designs. The clear aperture can be used to test multiple variants of a single design or multiple separate designs.
