Epson is set to collaborate with software developer Autodesk to make it easier for engineers and architects to seamlessly use a projector in their active design sessions.

The Autodesk Revit software will allow design professionals to easily access Epson projectors with Autodesk Seek, a programme that enables designers to search for, download and integrate models, drawings and product specifications for their designs.

Thanks to Autodesk Revit software, those designers, architects and engineers designing buildings using a Building Information Modeling (BIM) process will be able to seamlessly integrate Epson projectors into their 3D models. This means that clients will be able to enjoy a more complete picture of the end result.

"We are committed to supporting design consultants' and engineers' efforts to streamline their BIM workflow," said Steve James, consultant liaison, Projectors, Epson America, Inc. "This integration allows our industry-leading installation projector solutions to become an integral part of the development process, providing for easier integration into 3D renderings."

Autodesk Seek will be compatible with a number of Epson projectors, including its Large Venue Series, PowerLite 1900-Series and BrightLink Pro-Series.

The collaboration with Autodesk highlights the importance and potential of projectors for a wide range of industries, including design, education and engineering.
