On Wednesday April 25th, Desktop Engineering presented the Editor’s Pick of the Week Award to Mathcad Prime 2.0. Desktop Engineering explains, “Each week, DE’s Editor at Large, Tony Lockwood, combs through dozens of new product releases and uses his years of engineering industry knowledge to choose a few products and services that he thinks will help engineers innovate by working smarter and more efficiently.”
Lockwood wrote a nice article about how we at PTC have added new capabilities and advanced functionality to the latest version of Mathcad- Mathcad Prime 2.0. He writes, “…Mathcad Prime 2.0… adds new calculation features and advanced capabilities to the software’s easy-to-learn, easy-to-use interface first introduced in Mathcad Prime 1.0. Enhancements reported in Mathcad Prime 2.0 are broadly concentrated in the areas of integration with Microsoft Excel, symbolic algebra, 3D plots, ‘collapsible areas,’ and in computational performance. Additionally, Mathcad Prime 2.0 integrates with other PTC products, such as its Creo Parametric 3D CAD and Windchill PLM (product lifecycle management) software, which is said to enable increased productivity, improved process efficiency, and better collaboration between individuals and teams.” To read the full review click here. Make sure to also watch some of the videos and read some of the datasheets at the bottom of the article to learn more.
In addition to this article, Lockwood wrote a nice piece on why Mathcad Prime 2.0 was nominated for an Editor’s Pick. He says, “As I watched the videos linked from today’s Pick of the Week write-up and on the Mathcad Prime web pages, it seemed to me that Mathcad’s new interface makes it easier to combine math notation, text, and graphs, then manipulate them. Performance seems really improved. Frankly, it seems to me that PTC has really hit its stride with Mathcad Prime 2.0.”
“Still, even with all these major improvements, the thing that got me is that Mathcad Prime 2.0 appears to remain faithful to what Mathcad has always been: an easy-to-use document-centric solution for simultaneously solving, graphing, annotating, documenting, and saving, sharing, and reusing engineering calculations. Only it’s totally new with better performance and a bunch more functionality.” To read the full nomination, click here.
