    Default lens smiluator program thing?

    I'm pretty sure there used to be a program linked on this forum or LPF where you could add a beam and lenses and see what beam you'd end up with by positioning the lenses and beam in an editor.
    Anybody know of such a program?
    Would spare this forum users from some stupid questions from me.

    There's an App for the iPhone called RayLab that's pretty good.

    Something like that for Windows would be great. Doesn't have to be free.

    ... this is a "lense-evolver" in German and needs an older windows than Win7 (had it running on Win98 and XP):

    Wow, both german only and not working on Windows 7 and above? Thanks for posting but I don't think that will help many people.

    ... you can make some basic optical setups (lens, refration, laserbeams ...) with Algodoo, but it's more meant for education, than exact numbers:

    These all look nice, even though I haven't wrapped my hand around the GUI yet. Thank you.
