HP Instant Printing for Autodesk applications offers extended project teams the first-ever single-click printing of large-format, highly detailed drawings, plans and maps from a software application. HP Instant Printing technology enables plans and drawings to be printed accurately and reliably in the contractor's office, at a job site, or on the manufacturing floor, with the click of a button. Users simply select and click the HP Instant Printing button in the main toolbar of the Autodesk DWF Viewer or Autodesk Design Review application. When printing DWF files, you can allow the device driver to select the page size and orient the image to the paper to minimize paper usage. Sweet!
The following devices support HP Instant printing with DWF:
- HP DesignJet 4000/4000ps

- The user interface for the Autodesk DWF Viewer has an option to disable 3D for HP Instant Printing. This allows you to request that the entire DWF file be printed using HP Instant Printing, but you will only generate a complete set of the 2D printouts. This is handy when working with composite DWF files.
