Arnold Mirror Modeler Software

This software creates complex finite element models of large-format, lightweight mirrors for complete input decks. Before, building these models could take engineers weeks or even months to complete a single iteration. Now the modeler tool can do the same task in minutes. The software creates many levels of model complexity, from single mirrors (circular or hexagonal shapes) to arrays of mirror segments. Models can have local reinforcement surrounding attachment points, and mesh can be refined (doubled) as many times as necessary.
