Key Features

Intuitive Calculations and Units Management

The PTC Mathcad interface combines live, standard mathematical notation with text and graphs.

Content Protection

This provides area protection and locking so that you control the degree of access and the visibility you want others to have.


It’s quick and easy to embed material from third party applications in your Mathcad worksheet, as well as copy and paste multiple regions of a worksheet into MS Word.


Equation wrapping offers more control over the presentation and legibility of calculations.


Solve your complex systems of equations without performing linear algebra or matrix manipulations.


Use familiar programming operators (for-loop, while-loop, if-then-else, etc.) to define functions of any complexity.


Don’t “do it yourself.” Mathcad includes built-in functions for all these purposes independent of industry.
