What is Mathcad?

PTC Mathcad – Show your work!

Engineering calculations are essential for product design. To achieve excellence in engineering, you need a comprehensive yet intuitive application that performs accurate calculations, enables traceability, protects intellectual property and allows you to show your work.

Document your most critical engineering calculations in an engineering notebook with natural mathematical notation and units intelligence. Show your work using rich formatting options alongside plots, text, and images in a single, professionally formatted document.

Choose PTC Mathcad Prime because spreadsheets just can’t compete. Mathcad visually represents math in an intuitive way, making it easy to define, understand, and manipulate engineering calculations with the whiteboard-like user interface.

Mathcad’s approach to engineering calculations

Natural Math Notation

Access to math notations and symbols makes it easy to construct equations. Equations are entered as they appear in a reference book, with the ability to use English and Greek characters in standard math operations.
