Looking for Ray Tracer Software

  1. Feb 6, 2010 #1
    I am looking for freeware which enable the simulation of a system with 3 mirrors, a laser, and a detector. So far I've only managed to find software for lenses on the internet. Would anyone lend a hand? :D

    The lens software will also do mirrors, etc
    Only fairly advanced packages are going to be able to accurately model a laser but any of them should be able to do a point source.

    The only reasonably complete free one I know of is Oslo http://www.lambdares.com/education/oslo_edu/ [Broken]
