5 Mathcad Prime 2.0 features that you need to know about

Posted by Emma Rudeck on 08-Mar-2013 12:44:00

mathcad prime 2.0Mathcad Prime 2.0 is built around the concept of doing more with less. It develops the success of Mathcad Prime 1.0, offering an increasing number of options for users. Mathcad Prime 2.0 provides users with a richer set of capabilities, to enhance that existing Mathcad feature set and solve larger problems. And, we know that it offers the best combination so far of power and ease of use. So, what are the features of Mathcad Prime 2.0 that you need to know about?

#1 Better integration with Microsoft Excel

Users will experience a simpler and tighter integration with Microsoft Excel, when using Mathcad Prime 2.0. For example, the embedded Excel component allows users to leverage data, to combine the engineering power of Mathcad with the familiarity of Excel’s tabular data features.

#2 Symbolic calculations in Mathcad Prime 2.0

Symbolic calculations allow engineers to use general mathematical principals and introduce specific numerical results as needed. Through Mathcad patented approach, engineers can freely explore with confidence, knowing that both symbolic and numerical calculations remain live as inputs or formulas change.

#3 3D plots for visualising complex data

3D plots provide users with a qualitative and quantitative mechanism to visualise complex data sets. Intuitive interaction with 3D plots adheres to Mathcad Prime 2.0’s principles of direct manipulation, enabling and efficient and unobstructed environment for exploration.

#4 Collapsible areas to improve worksheet organisation

Collapsible areas are an efficient organisational tool. By placing live calculations in sections that can be hidden from view, it means that simplified versions of the worksheet can be easily produced. These simplified versions can hide complex equations or commonly used definitions. This allows recipients of the worksheet to focus on the key aspects of the worksheet, improving productivity and quality.

#5 Increased computational power

Finally, there is the greater computational power and an increase in performance in Mathcad Prime 2.0, which means that users can leverage 64-bit architecture. This means that they can solver bigger problems and process larger data sets. Multi-threading also better utilises today’s multi-processor machines, enabling faster recalculation of the variety of calculation threads in any given worksheet.
