Summary

While computer-assisted design (CAD) systems for design are improving it is also important to be able to represent the colors of the object on the CAD monitor. In general this requires knowledge of the reflectance spectrum of the object. With glass the situation is simpler, since only the easily measured transmittance spectrum is needed. The spectrum can be used to calculate the CIE tristimulus values X, Y, and Z for various illuminant sources. The X, Y, and Z values can be transferred to the R, G, and B values of the monitor by matrix calculations.
