we present the developments of the McXtrace project, a free, open source software package based on Monte Carlo ray tracing for simulations and optimisation of complete X-ray instruments. The methodology of building a simulation is presented through an example beamline, namely Beamline 811 at MAX-lab, Lund, Sweden - a beamline dedicated to materials science. © 2011 COPYRIGHT Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE).
