HP Reinvents Print Experiences for Architecture, Engineering and Construction Pros
Delivers smart, secure, seamless project collaboration for teams of all sizes
PALO ALTO, Calif., May 20, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Working together just got simpler. Meet HP’s app-based and cloud connected multi-function printer portfolio designed for the architecture, engineering and design community. With seamless set-up and cloud-based connectivity, the portfolio is designed to print, scan and copy from virtually anywhere, with smart apps, interfaces and overall fewer “clicks” to print. Easy and direct “ready when you are” printing means teams of all sizes can better collaborate and move projects forward faster and more efficiently.
The new HP DesignJet T1600 printers and T2600 MFPs, and HP DesignJet XL 3600 MFP are the latest additions to the world’s most secure Large Format printers.1 HP’s security technology provides the best network protection and keeps the fleet secure, to help prevent print related data loss that can cost $400,000 on average per year.2
HP is also introducing HP PageWide XL 3900 to help teams boost efficiency. Completing the portfolio are new printers for small business and home. The new HP DesignJet T100 and T500 are compact and designed to complement smaller workspaces requiring faster data and mobile communications.
“7 out of 10 architects are being regularly interrupted during work to print for colleagues.3 This seemingly small challenge means there is friction that is holding them back from the next great project,” says Guayente Sanmartín, general manager and global head, HP Large Format Design Printing. “HP is leading the transformation in Large Format for small to medium-size businesses so the workplace printing experience feels as smart and easy as it does at home, enhanced with security for peace-of-mind.”
The new HP DesignJet T1600 and T2600, HP DesignJet XL 3600 MFP, and HP PageWide XL 3900 MFP features:
HP DesignJet T1600 and T2600 – Engineered for collaboration
HP DesignJet XL 3600 MFP – A new standard with the most immediate and robust MFP in the market
The HP DesignJet XL 3600 MFP was designed to create a new standard of reliability. It is optimized to deliver immediate results through the fastest first page out in the market, so that designers do not need to wait in front of the printer.
HP PageWide XL 3900 MFP Printer – New addition to the production portfolio
To complement the production portfolio for technical departments, HP is also introducing HP PageWide XL 3900 to help teams work even faster, save costs and consolidate two devices into one with mono and color printing.
HP DesignJet T100/T500 – Simplified large format printing designed with a smaller footprint
Ideal for architecture studios and AEC offices preferring a smaller footprint, the HP DesignJet T100/T500 printers are HP’s most affordable plotters, offering a convenient solution for on-demand printing. The printers are also the first DesignJet plotters capable of automating repetitive workflows.

2 Quocirca, Global Print Security Landscape (2019). According to Quocirca, “Print related data breaches are frequent and costly. 11% of all security incidents are print related, equating to an average of nine print-related incidents per year. 59% of these lead to data losses, costing an average of
3 HP Internal Research (2018). One of the main learnings resulting from the research carried out by the Customer Experience and Design team in relation to workgroup environments was that in 76% of architectural offices, people with large format printing needs ask content creators to print for them monthly, creating a potential source of conflict within the office. The study was done with a total sample of 27 customers including: a c-space survey, call interviews, in-house usability tests and field visits.
