Cambridge, UK - ­ Informatix Software International, a provider of CAD software solutions, announces 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 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

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 it¹s own PDF creation tool
and full documentation management there is no need to purchase additional
Adobe or other desktop publishing licences.

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
