Mathcad Prime 1.0

Intuitive and Powerful – Spend More Time Engineering and Less Time Documenting

Here’s a Preview of What’s New

Mathcad Prime 1.0 is PTC’s latest release of the industry standard software for engineering calculations. Completely re-designed, Mathcad Prime 1.0 provides a task-based interface for enhanced usability. Plus it delivers powerful capabilities within a document-centric calculations environment for users to create complex, professional engineering design documents quickly and easily.

New features and benefits include:

  • Improved usability and discoverability – Experienced users can complete more tasks with less effort, and new users will spend less time learning to use Mathcad Prime 1.0
  • Document-centric calculation environment – Reduce the time it takes to develop a design worksheet, by combining math, text and images on one document. That means less time editing and formatting your worksheet
  • Advanced Math Exploration – Quickly and easily create calculations for testing – before committing them to a design, and reducing re-work in the design process
  • Numeric functions library – With ready-to-use numeric functions, you’ll be able to tackle any computational problem, saving time and effort
  • Dynamic Units Checking – Now you have full support for units throughout all calculations created in Mathcad Prime 1.0, resulting in reduced errors and higher accuracy, while improving process efficiency in product development
  • Reverse compatibility – Quickly convert most engineering worksheets saved in previous versions back to Mathcad 7.0, while summarizing any specific compatibility issues, minimizing any work to recreate calculations and worksheets
  • WYSIWYG equation editor – Express problem constraints and solutions in natural math notation – focusing on the calculations, while spending less time manipulating the document
  • Design of Experiments (DoE) – Save time, effort and expense by creating fewer, yet more intelligent experiments
  • Maximize productivity with full Windows 7 support

Mathcad Prime 1.0 greatly enhances the overall user experience with a new interface within a document-centric calculations environment, and advanced math exploration. The result: you spend more time engineering and less time documenting.

Mathcad Prime 1.0 is planned to be available in the first quarter of calendar year 2011.
