PTC Introduces PTC Mathcad® Prime™ 3.0; Supports the Most Advanced Engineering Design Calculations

New release offers significantly improved calculation capabilities

NEEDHAM, MA - October 2, 2013 - PTC (Nasdaq: PMTC) today announced the availability of PTC Mathcad Prime 3.0, the latest version of its engineering calculation software designed for solving, analyzing and sharing engineering design knowledge. PTC Mathcad Prime 3.0 has significantly improved its calculation capabilities to allow more complex equations to be solved, faster. PTC Mathcad offers hundreds of mathematical functions, the unlimited ability for users to define their own, the capability to solve equations both numerically and symbolically, and the power to solve the most complex systems of equations. 

Specifically, with the new release, PTC Mathcad Prime 3.0 offers overall benefits to users in the areas of:

"We are pleased at how intuitively ideas are captured in PTC Mathcad Prime 3.0. Math is now represented in a way that is easy for the author to write - and easy for a reviewer to understand," said Scot Shields, design engineer, Hagler Systems. "PTC Mathcad Prime 3.0 provides us with an environment where quick notes can be made, models can be built to test hypotheses and results can be verified."

"As a result of a common tool that produces worksheets that can be easily used and understood by all levels in our organization - and for everything from documentation to sophisticated design studies - our engineers can now actually spend time engineering," continued Shields. 

Integration with PTC Creo® and PTC Windchill®

By linking design inputs and calculation results to PTC Creo, engineers are easily able to perform test analyses, optimize geometry parameters and perform verification and validation steps on final designs to confirm original customer requirements are met. 

Similarly, allowing Mathcad Prime 3.0 worksheets to be managed directly by PTC Windchill, users benefit from global collaboration, version control, and traceability for their critical design and engineering knowledge. 

"Using engineering calculations to drive CAD models managed by a PLM backbone is the engineers' way of crossing their "t's" and dotting their "i's," said Brent Edmonds, senior director, Mathcad, PTC. "The level of integration in PTC Mathcad Prime 3.0 between PTC Creo and PTC Windchill essentially closes all the loops and ensures the accuracy of our customers' final products."
