offerings that come bundled with the
HP Designjet T2300 eMFP to help simplify and improve the technical design

“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
, 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 draw­ings 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,
