Created for medium and large architecture, engineering and construction firms and enterprise businesses, the HP Designjet T2300 eMFP allows design professionals to easily scan and upload documents to the web and to print drawings wherever needed(1) – from project team meetings at the main office to reviews with clients and even at the construction site. With two online media rolls and simultaneous copy and scan functions, the HP Designjet T2300 eMFP is designed to improve productivity at each of these locations by accommodating multiple projects at the same time.
In conjunction with the HP Designjet T2300 eMFP, the new HP ePrint & Share platform simplifies the printing process for technical drawings. Available through
HP ePrintCenter, an online hub for all HP customers to create a custom printing experience, HP ePrint & Share allows architects to easily locate and access their plans, adjust page layouts, preview print pages and create print-ready files from a single screen. Users also can upload files with a single click while printing is in process to quickly and easily share designs with remote project teams.(2)
“For us, technology is not only a tool to materialize ideas, but an important partner in a creative process that demands a high degree of mobility,” said Matias del Campo, principal, SPAN Architecture & Design. “We are based in Vienna, but our projects are distributed around the world, from construction sites to teaching studios to conferences. The HP Designjet T2300 eMFP and HP ePrint & Share make it possible to print and preview files from anywhere(2) and provide us with an interface between our digitally heavy design techniques, the networking and distribution of information and the physical world.”
The HP Designjet T2300 PostScript eMFP includes several industry firsts:
- The first color touchscreen interface on a large-format printer for simple one-click scanning, copying and printing operation
- The first true large-format multifunction device priced below $8,500,(4) opening the door to in-house large-format printing for more customers
- The first driverless printing for direct printing from a notebook PC or USB drive to eliminate print driver and network constraints
HP and Autodesk are working together to provide solutions that help design professionals streamline the architectural process and build cycle. The new HP ePrint & Share plug-in for AutoCAD allows customers to simplify their printing directly from AutoCAD. Additionally, a license of AutoCAD Raster Design included with the purchase of the HP Designjet T2300 eMFP enables the full scanning of sketches, printed plans or blueprints, which can then be digitized and vectorized for further design.
”By scanning original plans that we use as a basis for design, we save about 50 percent of the time it would take to create a new plan,” said Russ Phillips, principal architect at Insight Architects and an HP Designjet T2300 eMFP beta customer. “With the new HP Designjet eMFP, we scan to JPEG or PDF and use the image as a background. A plan that would have taken eight hours to develop now takes only four hours.”
