Announcing PTC Mathcad Prime 3.1

ptc blue mathcad imageI am excited to announce our latest release PTC Mathcad Prime 3.1. With the new features in this version, you can better connect your engineering calculations to other applications and processes.

This release introduces a new, enhanced integration with PTC Creo*. Users can embed and edit a PTC Mathcad worksheet directly in the CAD model, at the part or assembly level. This allows PTC Mathcad to automatically calculate and drive parameters to update the CAD model. At the same time, parameters from PTC Creo can be used to drive engineering calculations. This new ability to quickly and easily document engineering knowledge and design intent with PTC Mathcad inside the PTC Creo model provides engineers with a powerful digital engineering notebook.

Secondly, in this release you’ll find a completely rewritten API to integrate and automate PTC Mathcad with other software. The API is more efficient and easier to use, adding important new features such as an event handler and the ability to retrieve and define data in different units. PTC Mathcad Prime 3.1 can now easily integrate with your design software, analysis tools, and PDM systems to support more automated and accurate design processes.

Additionally, PTC Mathcad Prime 3.1 provides pre-built integrations with a variety of third-party tools such as Prode’s physical properties, CoolProp’s fluid properties, and ODBC-compliant databases. Users can also read and write HDF5 file format, or export their mathematical algorithms to drive CAD surfaces through industry standard STL, DXF or IBL formats.

PTC Mathcad Prime 3.1 provides even greater power for users working with large data sets. By making use of the latest in Microsoft technology and 64-bit architectures, data sets are no longer limited to 2GB of memory. Additionally, PTC Mathcad Prime 3.1 is now certified to run on the Windows 8.1 platform, continuing our support for the most popular PC operating system.

Finally, with this release, PTC continues to expand our extensive library of pre-built worksheets. Today there are over 700 worksheets available, covering a variety of real world examples and design problems across mechanical, electrical, civil and structural, chemical, and applied math disciplines, including over 100 free worksheets.

PTC Mathcad Prime 3.1 is the only engineering notebook you need. This new release is the single solution for solving, analyzing, documenting, and sharing your essential engineering calculations and design intent.
