●Lighting Fixtures & Other Part/Product Designs- Using 3D Virtual Modeling Tools. We Design & Virtually Test All Parts For Perfect: Shape, Size, Fit, & Manufacturability
●IES File Repair & Rebranding- Some IES Data Files Are Created Virtually (Based On Software Instead Of a Physical Lab Test) Or Do Not Conform To IES Standards For Other Reasons, Inadvertently Inhibiting Them From Working Properly With Some Photometric Application Software. Also, Many O.E.M. Lighting Companies Resell Privately Labeled Lighting Fixtures Under Their Own Name, With The IES Files Provided By The Actual Manufacturer, Exposing The Name Of The Actual Manufacturer To The OEM's Clients and Competitors.
