HP Announces Availability of Collaborative ePrint & Share Solution for Technical Design Professionals

ALO ALTO, Calif - Design professionals in the architecture, engineering and construction industries will be able to save time, improve collaboration and reduce review cycles using the industry’s first web-ready large-format printing solution ­ available today.

The new HP ePrint & Share and HP Designjet T2300 eMultifunction Printer (eMFP) solution allows design teams to easily access, share and print large-format project files online anytime, anywhere.(1) HP also introduced new HP Graphics Solutions Partner Program offerings that come bundled with the HP Designjet T2300 eMFP to help simplify and improve the technical design process.

“In September, HP announced a breakthrough in the way design professionals can collaborate and share information through its ePrint & Share platform and the new HP Designjet T2300 eMFP,” said Santiago Morera, vice president and general manager, HP Designjet Large-Format Solutions, HP. “Today, HP is making this innovative solution available to allow technical design professionals to reduce review cycles and unleash their creativity.”

The world’s most collaborative printing solution
The HP ePrint & Share platform revolutionizes the way design professionals manage project workflows. Available for download at www.hp.com/go/eprintandshare, HP ePrint & Share allows architects, engineers and construction professionals to directly scan project files to the cloud, quickly print and access plans from the road, share designs with remote project teams(1) and seamlessly collaborate with design partners around the world.

HP ePrint & Share is available for all HP Designjet customers and will be accessible from the touchscreen of the HP Designjet T2300 eMFP(2) ­ the industry’s first web-ready large-format printer with scan, print and copy functionality.(1) Designed to match today’s collaborative and mobile work styles, the new printer allows technical design professionals to easily scan and upload documents to the web and to print drawings wherever needed.(1)

Autodesk solutions for end-to-end workflows
HP and Autodesk, a leader in 3-D design software, are providing a completely integrated workflow solution that helps design professionals improve efficiency, collaboration and productivity on every project, from start to finish.

Autodesk software solutions bundled with every HP Designjet T2300 eMFP purchase include:

  • A new HP ePrint & Share plug-in, which allows customers to simplify their printing directly from AutoCAD, industry-leading software that offers powerful tools for exploring design concepts and accelerating documentation
  • AutoCAD® Raster Design,(3) which enables the full scanning and vectorization of sketches, printed plans or blueprints, is one of the leading raster applications for design professionals who need to use or reuse scanned paper draw¬ings to manage, convert, analyze and edit those images in AutoCAD software and applications based on AutoCAD.
“With the new HP Designjet T2300 eMFP, architects and designers can scan existing drawings and blueprints, and then rasterize and vectorize them through AutoCAD Raster Design, and then bring them into AutoCAD for editing,” said Amy Buszel, senior director, AutoCAD Products, Autodesk. “Beginning a project with a CAD file instead of manually creating a design in AutoCAD based on paper files is a much more efficient process.”

Trial version of Scan2CAD software from Softcover
Also bundled with each HP Designjet T2300 eMFP is a 30-day trial version of Softcover International’s Scan2CAD software. Customers who have purchased an HP Designjet T2300 eMFP also will be entitled to a significant discount on Scan2CAD software, version 8.

With Scan2CAD, users can quickly scan drawings and printouts into Drawing eXchange Format (DXF) files suitable for editing in any PC computer-aided design (CAD) program using Softcover’s automatic raster-to-vector and PDF-to-CAD conversion technologies. The program can extract CAD-editable data from a variety of formats, including single- or multipage vector PDFs, single- or multipage raster PDFs, single- or multipage hybrid PDFs (raster and vector), and scanned (raster) images created with desktop/large-format scanners and saved in many standard image file formats, including BMP, CAL, CIT, JPEG, TIFF and PNG.

More information about the latest additions to the HP Designjet portfolio is available at www.hp.com/go/collaborate. Videos and insights from beta customers using the HP Designjet T2300 eMFP and HP ePrint & Share also are available on Facebook at www.facebook.com/HPdesigners.
