    I don't think the software exists....yet. There is a program or two that can be used to design lenses before surfacing and will yield a 3D picture of it.

    Hello,

    I have the data form our LMS (calculation result) and freeform surface file for both eye. So I know front curve from the LMS and Sag data from the freeform surface file (.hmf). Is it possible to generate backcurve from the Sag data (what is the formula ?) . and calculate difference of Back and front curve.

    It exists; we just haven't released it yet.

    If you can find an old copy of SOLA-Rx around, it shows 3D views of lenses, which you can also rotate, along with thickness profiles. Since we can no longer provide support for it, the software is no longer available from Carl Zeiss Vision though.
