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
"As a result of a common tool that produces worksheets that can be easily used and understood by all levels in our organization - and for everything from documentation to sophisticated design studies - our engineers can now actually spend time engineering," continued Shields. Integration with PTC Creo® and PTC Windchill®By linking design inputs and calculation results to PTC Creo, engineers are easily able to perform test analyses, optimize geometry parameters and perform verification and validation steps on final designs to confirm original customer requirements are met.
Similarly, allowing Mathcad Prime 3.0 worksheets to be managed directly by PTC Windchill, users benefit from global collaboration, version control, and traceability for their critical design and engineering knowledge.
"Using engineering calculations to drive CAD models managed by a PLM backbone is the engineers' way of crossing their "t's" and dotting their "i's," said
