This technical publication describes features that were added to ReflectorCAD® 1.5 from Breault Research Organization (BRO). As with ReflectorCAD 1.0, this version supports construction and analysis of a segmented reflector, greatly reducing the time required from design to prototype. Primarily targeted for automotive applications, ReflectorCAD can be used anywhere segmented reflectors are required. It works well as a standalone application, in conjunction with ASAP for additional ray-tracing analysis, or for SAE compliance using the ELTM module in the Advanced Systems Analysis Program (ASAP®), also from BRO.
ReflectorCAD® 1.5 contains improvements listed below and described in the technical publication.

User-Defined Source Points
Alternate Segment Developer
