We are designing car headlight reflectors. The most important thing that we need to do is to design the curvature of the reflector so that all the light from bulb is reflected onto a specific and small part of road on front.
As soon as we have achieved light reflection simulation, we'll have to keep tweaking the reflector shape to achieve desired result.
Initially I tried doing it in SketchUp with a plugin that can simulate reflection of a light rays. But as per designers in our team, it's a very basic software and difficult to design in it.
Our designers have tried simulating reflection in Maya. But couldn't do it.
Can anyone please guide us on which software to use to simulate light reflection and design the reflector.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
