Abstract: One of the major challenges in eclipsing binary modeling is enhancing the accuracy of the model while keeping the execution time manageable. In order to do so, time-expensive computation of the spectral energy distribution across the stellar surface is implemented via the lookup tables. We present here a utility that builds a Wilson-Devinney-compatible table entry of normal emergent intensities for any supplied passband transmission function by using Castelli & Kurucz's NEWODF models across the H-R diagram. The output of the utility can be readily used for detailed model light curve computations in the given passband. The program and the database of spectra may be downloaded from
