Rapid Prototyping & Customized Optical Systems

4DOS® GmbH has designed and constructed a number of solutions customized for several different end users that come from research and industry. The development cycle typically starts with a problem to which we offer a solution that is followed by CAD steps such as Ray-Tracing, Mechanical CAD, or FEM simulations. In the next step 3D-printing is used as rapid prototyping tool and to test different mechanical and opto-mechanical solutions. If wished we accompany our customers up to the GUI Front end programming. We also step in at dead ends when a development project seems to stall and needs additional support to overcome intermediate problems. These project are typically carried out under agreements that assure the highest confidentiality to our customers.
Exemplary projects of our research customers were:
  • - UHV goniometers and ellipsometers
  • - UHV magnetic cryostats
  • - Design of optical lens and imaging systems
  • - Optomechantronical Problems
