PTC Mathcad

Mathcad – the industry’s leading technical calculation software

Expert View

PTC Mathcad combines a powerful computing module for conventional mathematical notation with a word processor and fully fledged diagram creator. Complete your projects faster with excellent documentation and sample applications. Many tasks can be automated – this saves time and helps avoid errors.

Based on the industry’s leading capabilities of the previous version including 3D graphing, integration with Microsoft Excel, collapsible areas and symbolic (CAS) capabilities, the latest version PTC Mathcad Prime 3.0 now includes major enhancements to calculation features and provides superior computing power within a consistent, document-centric environment.

  • Create calculations, document and provide them for use by others
  • Documentation of calculations in mathematical notation with engineering units
  • Reduce the percentage of errors by automatic cross checking and conversion of engineering units
  • Automate processing by using templates and formatting patterns

Creo Integration

New: Embed PTC Mathcad worksheets in PTC Creo Models
