Overall Satisfaction with PTC Mathcad

PTC Mathcad is used in various engineering departments within our organization. It is used for engineering calculations and design reviews.
  • PTC Mathcad has an easy to use interface.
  • PTC Mathcad offers templates that can be used to start projects.
  • PTC Mathcad has extensive math tools and functions for complex engineering analysis work.
  • Some of the math and text formatting aspects are a little cumbersome.
  • Converting from older Matchcad versions to the newer Mathcad Prime platform could be made easier. It should be a direct import function.
  • Mathcad has allowed us to take legacy hand written calculations and document them in an electronic format. Now we can quickly run different design scenarios using the legacy calculations. It allows us to quickly vet new design options.
  • Sharing new design concepts is quicker and easier within our various design groups.
I have only used a freeware version called SMath Studio. It has similar functionality but lacks the full experience MathCad offers.
Mathcad is a great tool for engineering calculations. It is extremely flexible and easy for new users to learn. Its powerful functionality make it a great software for complex engineering problems and designs. It provides a quick and easy way to document your designs. The results are easy to format and share with other members of the design team.
