d&b audiotechnik Simplifies Complex Venue Building in ArrayCalc

230
In a small but important step to streamlining the d&b Workflow, d&b audiotechnik launched d&b ArrayCalc Exchange software to simplify the import of complex venue geometry data from CAD and EASE into the ArrayCalc simulation software.

d&b ArrayCalc Exchange is a SketchUp extension that allows users to convert CAD and EASE files into an ArrayCalc venue file (*.dbacv) that can be imported directly into ArrayCalc.

d&b ArrayCalc Exchange supports system designers in mobile and fixed applications by simplifying the creation of complex venues in ArrayCalc. Selected elements are divided into triangles or quadrangles and converted into corresponding triangular or quadrangular planes that are used in ArrayCalc.

Different layer name extensions are available, which will determine the input type of the single components from SketchUp in ArrayCalc.

The d&b ArrayCalc simulation software is the simulation tool. This is a comprehensive toolbox for all tasks associated with acoustic design, performance prediction, alignment, rigging and safety parameters.

ArrayCalc Exchange and a corresponding video tutorial will be available as free download via dbaudio.com.
