Mathcad Prime 5.0
The best calculation tool for engineers


PTC Mathcad Prime 5.0

PTC Mathcad® is the world leading mathematical calculation tool since by 1986 and used by more than 2 million engineers and 2000 universities across the world. It is an Engineering Math software that allows users to perform, analyse and share most vital calculations in a single document. Its live mathematical notation, units intelligence, and powerful calculation capabilities, presented within an easy-to-use interface, allows engineers and design teams to capture and communicate their critical design and engineering knowledge.

This software solution does what spreadsheets, word processing, presentation software and programming applications simply cannot do – it brings powerful calculation capabilities into human-readable form. It integrates these human-readable, live calculations with plots, graphs, text, and images into a single, interactive, professionally presented document. This ease and familiarity of an engineering notebook enables design exploration, validation and verification, and the clear communication of critical engineering information. You don’t need to be an expert to read and understand PTC Mathcad documents.

Two versions for the price of one

You don't need anymore to chose specific version you want to download - PTC Mathcad 15 and Prime come as a bundle.
