PTC (Nasdaq: PMTC) today announced the availability of PTC Mathcad Prime 3.0, the latest version of its engineering calculation software designed for solving, analyzing and sharing engineering design knowledge. PTC Mathcad Prime 3.0 has significantly improved its calculation capabilities to allow more complex equations to be solved, faster.

Specifically, with the new release, PTC Mathcad Prime 3.0 offers overall benefits to users in the areas of:

  • Documentation Enhancements – Introducing math in text, the ability to format math regions and ability to create new worksheets based on existing personal or company standardized templates which help support adherence to standards for calculations and documentation
  • Custom Functions – Capability to reuse existing algorithms already coded in C++, C, Fortran etc., to extend PTC Mathcad capabilities beyond what is provided out-of-the-box
  • Global Definition Operator – Ability to define constants and parameters that can be used anywhere in the worksheet, and to define parameters close to the end result
  • Numeric Enhancements –New faster matrix decomposition functions with support for pivoting and complex numbers
  • Surface interpolation in contour plots – Users can now create a contour plot of a set of unordered 3D points leveraging a PTC Creo® surface interpolation algorithm
  • Usability Improvements – Offers a number of improvements to frequently used functionality (such as pasting images to headers/footers and overtyping equations) that can translate into increased efficiency

“We are pleased at how intuitively ideas are captured in PTC Mathcad Prime 3.0. Math is now represented in a way that is easy for the author to write – and easy for a reviewer to understand,” said Scot Shields, design engineer, Hagler Systems. “PTC Mathcad Prime 3.0 provides us with an environment where quick notes can be made, models can be built to test hypotheses and results can be verified.”
