These enhancements allow users to solve and document a broader range of engineering design problems.

Enhancements in Plot Formatting

Increased PTC Support

With Mathcad 14.0, customers on active maintenance now have access to PTC's global 24X7 technical support. This significantly increases the previous technical support offering, giving customers the support they need anytime, anywhere.

New Additions to Mathcad Resources

Mathcad's online resources continue to provide hundreds of worksheets that illustrate the depth of Mathcad's mathematical power and the variety of applications that Mathcad supports.

A new Solving and Optimization E-book is now available with Mathcad 14.0. (English only)

Migration Guide

In addition to the traditional Help and Resources, Mathcad 14.0 documentation offers an important resource for experienced users. The Migration Guide discusses math constructs that have been upgraded in recent versions and any incompatibilities those may create with older versions of Mathcad. This enables customers to quickly get up to speed on the latest version of Mathcad and leverage their existing intellectual property.
