Z by HP Brings Substance 3D to Creators

Over the past few years, Z by HP has been collaborating with Adobe to equip users on their journey into the third dimension, and we are always blown away by the creations from the community. Their work, created with Adobe software, inspires us to push farther to deliver creators with the tools they need to power their next artistic breakthrough.

“It might sound a bit nuts, but the HP rig has completely changed my work and life and taken me in new directions I hadn't ever imagined I would go,” says Antony Carlyon, a digital creative in the UK who won a Z by HP device last year.

Stories like his help us see the bigger trend as 3D workflows continue to proliferate across creative disciplines. Creators who in the past were intimidated by 3D’s technical nature are adopting new skills faster than ever and using them to do incredible things.

With yesterday’s announcement from Adobe, Z by HP is offering six months of Adobe Substance 3D collection free with the purchase of qualifying Z by HP mobile workstation1 (offer only available through reseller channels and HP Store). We want artists and designers using 3D geometry and textures to be unencumbered by hardware limitations that pull them out of their creative zone. Whether you are just stepping into 3D for the first time, or a longtime 3D pro, our devices are designed to keep up with your creativity.



At HP, our Z portfolio has a deep heritage of equipping creators with the tools they require to created jaw-dropping visual effects and images that reflect the richness of their imaginations. To achieve this, we work hand in hand with our partners at Adobe, to ensure that the new Substance 3D collection offers a fantastic experience across our portfolio. We test use cases as diverse as your work, from visual effects and gaming to product and packaging design; even virtual photography all to optimize, accelerate, and delight.

With our recently announced lineup of eighth generation HP ZBooks, we offer the power and performance to free the creative mind in a variety of form factors to fit your workload and lifestyle.

The HP ZBook Fury offers the greatest expandability for the largest design projects, with memory capacity up to 128GB. The sleek and powerful HP ZBook Studio now offers up to NVIDIA RTX A5000 and GeForce RTX 3080, bringing the ability to process and render extremely complex geometries in a thin and light footprint. The HP ZBook Power delivers 3D performance at an affordable price.
