Hp 5500 Designjet vs. the Z6100

The folks at TMS plotters did a speed comparison video on these 2 machines. Positively brilliant to see them go heads up. Considering how printer manufacturers disclose speed ratings on their latest products are almost always exaggerated or skillfully misrepresenting what the machines true capabilites are.

Oh, and I have seen reports where the Z6100 prints 12 Arch D (24×36) prints in 15 minutes plus change. These we’re simple DWF files and if you are not already aware, these would be the JPEG’s of the architecture world. Simple line drawings compressed down. So these will always process faster but not necessarily print quicker.

Just click the image for the head to head speed challenge!
