HP introduced Autodesk SketchBook for Sprout by HP, the world’s first immersive computer. HP also updated Sprout’s breakthrough 3D Capture application with improvements to speed 3D content creation for professionals. The free Autodesk SketchBook and 3D Capture application downloads are available from the Sprout Marketplace.
Eric Monsef, Highly Immersive Systems, HP, said that as more prosumers and commercial users incorporate Sprout into workflows, key applications from premier developers like Autodesk will propel the use of immersive platforms and the application partners are nurturing a new generation of creators to fuel design and printing.
Autodesk SketchBook, a second new graphic design application for Sprout users, is a digital drawing and painting application with over 40 million users and will take advantage of Sprout’s dual screen and touch/stylus-supported interface.
Users will appreciate the scanning objects directly into the application using common tools and the zooming capability provided by Sprout’s touch workspace horizontal mat. The resulting full image or object can be viewed on Sprout’s 20-inch diagonal display.
According to Samir Hanna, vice president and general manager Consumer and 3D Printing, Autodesk, SketchBook on Sprout will open doors to new uses for individuals and companies needing to combine digital assets and physical elements to truly enhance their projects.
The Sprout 3D Capture application creates a full 3D digital model that can be manipulated, shared or printed. The September automated update of Sprout software will include free enhancements that reduce scanning cycles by 25% and allow professional users to reduce the scanning cycle.
