Biconvex Optical Lens

The construction of a biconvex lense shape.
An example for the using of the "intersection".
Objects:   "sphere".
Methods: "#declare", "intersection".
Click here for an example!

The princips of the construction of a biconvex lens.

The common parts (" intersection") of to overlapping spheres:

 //--------------------------  lens --------  
 #declare R   = 6.0;   //sphere radius
 #declare Over= 0.1;   //sphere overlap
  sphere{<0,0,0>,R  translate <0,0,-R+Over>}
  sphere{<0,0,0>,R  translate <0,0, R-Over>}
  texture{ T_Glass3 }
  interior{ I_Glass }
  translate < 0,1.2,0>}
 //---------------------------------- end --
