I find this program really cool. Nevertheless there are just a few basic designs to be loaded. So if some of members here would join the efforts we could broaden the base...

This software is far from that lens-designers use.
Monochrome lens design is pretty useless for normal photography. It helps for understanding, but you can not design a good useable lens for visible spectrum with this software alone.

See more about lens design software:

There are evaluation versions / open source / freeware lens design programms, like Opus, ados, KDP-2

For me it seems Code-V, Zemax - and for reflections und such Lighttools are very common lens desing programs.

I always forget how to use this thing after a month or so.

Also, I think he owns anything anyone designs.
