Informatix Software International partners with Hewlett Packard.
Cambridge, UK – Informatix Software International, a global provider of CAD software solutions, today announced a partnership with Hewlett Packard to provide customers with a bundled package of MicroGDS 3D Pro and Piranesi 5.1 pre-installed on the HP Z400 workstation.
This bundle creates the premier solution for rapid design of projects and presentations. Combining the best 2D and 3D presentation CAD software with the best Artistic rendering program installed on the award winning HP Z400 workstation this partnership delivers what customers are looking for today for existing projects along with the ability to create the 2D and 3D impressions of the future.
"The HP Z400 Workstation provides a platform to maximise the investment made in the Informatix solution. The performance of MicroGDS on a HP Z400 Workstation increases both productivity and user satisfaction in an industry where time is an expensive commodity." Mark Arthur, HP.
The HP Z400 delivers an enhanced workstation performance to transform the way you work. Supporting the latest Intel Dual- and Quadcore processors, the next-generation system architecture enables faster and efficient performance. To enhance the experience the ATI FirePro V3700 workstation graphics card combines a new ATI OpenGL optimised driver with the award-winning ATI FireGL graphics technology, delivering a new level of graphics performance and reliability for professional 3D graphics users. This workstation allows you to run more tasks and applications simultaneously, which compliment the core functionality within the Informatix products bundled in this offer.
MicroGDS is a true multi-user product that has been designed with ease of use, collaboration and quality in mind. Developed on the Windows platform in 1983 MicroGDS is fully compatible with Microsoft Office, allowing users to embed quotations or specification spreadsheets, presentations and word documents into the file. The actual file sizes reduce the bandwidth and storage requirements of the business making it easier to work with multiple users on the one project simultaneously. With it’s own PDF creation tool and full documentation management there is no need to purchase additional Adobe or other desktop publishing licences.
“Informatix are delighted to partner with HP, bundling MicroGDS with the HP Z Series Workstation will give our users the best Hardware platform to run one of the best 3D multi user CAD programs, and give customers that edge to win and deliver new business more effectively” Steve Evans, Informatix Software International Limited
This functionality does not compromise the 2D and 3D capabilities of the software. MicroGDS reads Google SketchUp files enabling a quick transfer of concept imagery into accurate CAD drawings and even supports AutoCAD DWF, DWG and DXF file formats. The LightWorks® rendering engine accelerates the creation and handling of 3D models resulting in a more complete tool for generating impressive rendered images. These are just a few of the capabilities of MicroGDS.
With full integration into Piranesi 5.1 the user can take their 2D or 3D image and convert it into a breathtaking presentation images creating dramatic impact. The final outputs of these workstations are second to none.
This partnership offers users the ability to take advantage of the benefits of both companies. By combining this powerful workstation with the superior capabilities and output of MicroGDS and Piranesi, both large and small businesses will compete on a level playing field relying on their own design innovations to make them stand out from the crowd.
