"The latest Autodesk Design Review software and HP Designjet printers provide architecture, engineering and construction professionals with a powerful combination of technologies for effective collaboration," said Amar Hanspal, senior vice president, Autodesk Platform Solutions and Emerging Business. "Through our joint efforts, we're delivering the quality and accuracy of design information that are essential for the demanding nature of our customers' work."

Autodesk Design Review, popular software for comprehensive review, markup and design collaboration, strengthens design professionals' ability to share and communicate design comments from non-CAD reviewers, digitally and globally. Recently introduced, Autodesk Design Review 2008 features a built- in, improved version of HP Instant Printing, offering a comprehensive package that makes team collaboration and project printing simple and easy.

"HP and Autodesk continue to demonstrate leadership in the market and a commitment to technical design professionals by developing unique solutions that give users a competitive edge," said Enrique Lores, vice president and general manager, Large Format Printing Division, HP. "HP Instant Printing for Autodesk Design Review further simplifies the printing experience by providing users with the ability to print what they want whenever they want it, with only one click, eliminating wait-time and costly outsourcing. Working closely with Autodesk, HP is able to bring dependable printing technology that best meets needs of architectural, engineering and construction professionals."

Seamless Collaboration

Autodesk Design Review 2008 software supports the design process by enabling even more extensive collaboration on both 2D and model-based information. The software speeds the design review process with intuitive tools for viewing, measuring and marking up compact, detail-rich DWF files without requiring CAD software or expertise. Design Review enables all-digital collaboration and communication of design changes among designers and their team members, tracking changes to designs and allowing easy integration of feedback into Autodesk manufacturing, architecture/engineering/construction (AEC) and geospatial applications, as well as word processing documents and spreadsheets. Incorporating Design Review into their business processes, architects using applications based on Revit or AutoCAD software, for example, can easily share their designs with a client or general contractor, take advantage of fast, easy printing to HP printers and receive feedback digitally.

SOM, one of the world's leading architecture, urban design, engineering and interior architecture firms, leverages the productivity tools that HP and Autodesk technologies have developed together to efficiently and seamlessly collaborate with its own key partners to create iconic designs around the world.

"Design teams at SOM use Design Review with HP Instant Printing and the new HP Designjet T1100 Printer series to collaborate on design and construction documents, especially between offices," said James Vandezande, associate and digital design manager, SOM. "HP and Autodesk's collaboration has given us the ability to quickly, effortlessly and more responsively work with our partners."

In addition, the new HP Designjet T1100 and T610 printers will ship with Autodesk Design Review 2008. This allows HP customers direct access to the new batch printing capabilities with HP Instant Printing. This added feature further enhances the already highly productive, reliable HP Designjet T Printer series. Autodesk Design Review will also support the HP Designjet Z6100, Z3100 and Z2100 printers.
