Code V - Optomechancial Layouts

Does anybody work with optical engineers who work in Code V?

The only output from Code V is STEP and IGES.  I have used STEP files in the past, but the optical guys change the designs alot.

I'm talking 50-100 times with tweaks that can change my mechanical layout quite a bit. STEP files seem not to lend the best parametric model assembly

The best way I found was to use there tablulated text based outputs on curvatures,thickness and airspacing to paramentrically build any assembly.


Is there a way to build invidual optical lenes and an optical layout built from a text based file in an assembly.
