PTC Mathcad Prime 4.0 Is Here!




We’ve been talking for months about the release of PTC Mathcad Prime 4.0, and now it’s finally here!

We’ve got a few things to tell you about the latest version of our engineering calculation software. But if you want to skip ahead and download it yourself, here’s the link.

What’s in PTC Mathcad Prime 4.0?

There are many improvements in this release, but the three you’ll want to start using right away in PTC Mathcad Prime 4.0 are content protection, equation breaking, and embedded objects.

Content protection: You can now designate an area in a worksheet, collapse, and/or lock it. That way, others can’t “leverage” or change your work. This protects your work, even when your calculations travel outside your own walls. Read more details here.

Embedded objects: People don’t just use PTC Mathcad to calculate and solve engineering problems. They also use it to communicate their work clearly. Now, to make your documentation even richer, you can embed objects like Visio files or PowerPoint slides into your worksheet.  This way, you can incorporate content created with other applications into your Mathcad worksheet and have direct access to the content through activating the object.   Find out more here.

Equation breaking: Another way to keep your math documentation tidy is to use the new equation breaking capability in PTC Mathcad Prime 4.0. Not only is wrapping equations possible, but it’s easy and flexible so anyone can easily follow your work. You can structure the length of an equation to fit within the bounds typically viewed on a page. You can even split shorter equations onto separate lines to make them easier to read.
