PTC Mathcad Prime 4.0 Boosts Calculation Capabilities

New capabilities include content protection, interoperability with third party applications, and user experience enhancements.

PTC has released its latest version of its Mathcad Prime engineering math software. The new capabilities of PTC Mathcad Prime 4.0 allow users to show, solve and secure vital calculations more effectively, increasing their value and usefulness.

PTC Mathcad Prime 4.0 provides capabilities that enable users to protect proprietary information without compromising the ability to share it, benefit from interoperability enhancements, and streamline workflows by better managing larger, complex worksheets.

“PTC is listening to the market. The performance and interoperability enhancements in PTC Mathcad Prime 4.0 enable users to simplify inefficient and complex workflows,” says Monica Schnitger, president and principal analyst, Schnitger Corp. “The math in PTC Mathcad Prime 4.0 continues to improve, allowing users to structure it as they want, while also protecting it as proprietary mathematical information.”

Key features of PTC Mathcad Prime 4.0:

  • Content protection provides area protection and locking to control the degree of access and visibility for other users.
  • Interoperability with third-party applications enables users to embed content from other applications into worksheets, 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.
  • Performance enhancements enable the creation of large, complex worksheets, simplify interaction with these documents, and include Windows 10 support.
“Products are becoming increasingly sophisticated, which puts pressure on those doing the complex engineering calculations behind products,” says Paul Sagar, vice president of CAD product management, PTC. “With PTC Mathcad Prime 4.0, users will find it easier and faster to develop, work with, and share these calculations across applications and organizations. And that means better products can get to market earlier.”

PTC Mathcad Prime 4.0 complements the recently-released Creo 4.0 3D CAD software for product design.
