Your project requires excellent optics in a timely fashion. How long do you need to budget for design and manufacturing of a lens? The amount of time it takes to design and manufacture a lens (called the lens design timeline) will depend on a number of variables, including complexity and how much extra the customer is willing to pay to speed up the process, but here are some general guidelines:
- Specifications: 1 day to 1 week
- Design: 1 day to 1 month
- Fabrication: 2 weeks to 3 months
- Assembly and test: 1 day to 1 week
