I have a CAD mock-up of 16 screws attached to a planetary gear system that rotate and revolve around the central axis. Now suppose there is light source far away and is oriented such that direction of light is perpendicular to the central rotational axis. I am looking for software that will be able to calculate the amount of light hitting the surface of the screws as they rotate and revolve (and get blocked by other screws).
Also, appreciate if you know a software that helps me animate the screws alone without the gears.
If it is still unclear about the position of light here is a bit more explanation. Imagine a top view of our solar system, such that the planets are the screws and the tip of the screw is coming towards you. Then the light source would a directional light coming from the center of our galaxy towards our solar system.
Edit 1: The software should be able to run on Windows 10. There is no price limit at this moment.
