Renkus-Heinz Joins with Autodesk to Create 3D Modeling Files for Revit
Posted on Monday, February 8, 2016

Orange County, CA | February, 2016 - Renkus-Heinz, the world leader in steerable sound, has teamed with Autodesk to create new avenues for consultants and systems integrators to specify Renkus-Heinz products using Autodesk Revit software. Designers using Revit software will now quickly and easily access files for Renkus-Heinz Iconyx Gen5 and VARIAi loudspeakers using Autodesk Seek, a web service that enables designers to quickly discover, preview and download BIM files, models, drawings, and product specifications for their active design sessions.

Autodesk Revit software helps architects and designers design buildings using a Building Information Modeling (BIM) process. Architects and designers can seamlessly integrate Renkus-Heinz technologies into their 3D models created with Revit software, allowing them to provide clients with a more complete picture of the end result.

"Renkus-Heinz has long been closely involved in working directly with design consultants and engineers throughout all aspects of their modeling and planning workflow," remarked Renkus-Heinz Senior Vice President Ralph Heinz. "Implementing Revit support is a logical step that enables design professionals to easily integrate Renkus-Heinz technologies, including our acclaimed Iconyx steerable arrays and our VARIAi adaptive directivity modular arrays, into their Revit model."

Renkus-Heinz Iconyx and IC Live Gen5 and VARIAi information and design files are now fully integrated and available through Autodesk Seek, including 3D BIM models, visual images, data sheets, and product specifications. Iconyx Gen5 represents the fifth generation of Iconyx digitally steered line array technology, integrating the power of UniBeam advanced beam steering algorithms with the intuitive control of our new RHAON II System Designer software to deliver a new standard in digitally steered arrays. VARIAi is the newest generation of Renkus-Heinz VARIA Modular Point Source Array. With a range of vertical and horizontal dispersion angles and Renkus-Heinz's unique transitional waveguides, VARIA's highly configurable enclosures make it easy to custom design a system for every application.

Renkus-Heinz Iconyx Gen5 and VARIAi files are available for download on Autodesk Seek at For more information on Renkus-Heinz technologies, visit
