In addition, its HP Z Workstations are among the fastest, most expandable and reliable computers available today.

Available in 24- or 36-inch models, the HP Designjet T520 ePrinter improves processing power while also delivering twice the speed and resolution of its predecessor.(2) The HP Designjet T120 and T520 ePrinters are the only large-format printers available with built-in Wi-Fi connectivity, so users can install the printer where it is most convenient.(3)

The HP Designjet ePrinter portfolio features mobile access and printing of large-format plans using HP Designjet ePrint & Share.(1) The web service is available through a desktop web browser, mobile application or the touch screen of web-connected HP Designjet printers.  HP Designjet ePrint & Share offers a secure online print history, connection to file transfer protocol (FTP) sites in one place and automatically generated hyperlinks for one-click access to any file in the print history.

HP Z Workstations have the performance and reliability AEC users trust to deal with the most complex data, designs, 3D models, analysis and information. The HP Z1 Workstation offers a display that snaps open so users can easily swap out parts and make upgrades without any tools required.  HP will demonstrate the full line of Z Workstations, including the HP Elitebook Mobile Workstations, with Autodesk applications running at peak speeds.
