CPC Wizard

The attached FRED file has an embedded script named “CPCwizard” which allows for simple creation of a circular hollow or solid CPC using a dialog.  The CPC can be specified using any of the following methods:

  • Max Angle In and Exit Diameter
  • Max Angle In and Entrance Diameter
  • Concentration Ratio and Exit Diameter
  • Concentration Ratio and Entrance Diameter

The CPC surface is created using FRED’s Polynomial Surface type and the coating and raytrace control specifications can also be assigned through the dialog.  If a solid geometry is used, the material properties will need to be assigned after creation.
