    for a small personal project I would like to do some simulations. I only
    need simple sources (point and surface) and reflective elements. No
    dispersion needs to be taken into account. As a result I would like to
    get IES or Eulumdat files.

    Is there a freeware program capable of doing it? Like you have FreeBPM
    for doing beam propagation method simulations?

    Thanks in advance.

    I don't know of any free ray trace programs that would give you the
    output you are looking for, but you can get a 30 day free trial of
    TracePro from Lambda Research that would do what you need.

    That could be an option. On the other hand this would probably result in
    problems if I want to make a real test trial later.

    I haven't really thought about these programs. I used them in the past
    for their original purpose.

    It's definitely not impossible to solve my problem with these programs,
    but it would be a very cumbersome approach. I still hope that I can find
    a different solution.
