“Express delivery” of mathematical computation: Mathcad Express, free, forever

The world’s most popular engineering calculation software, Mathcad, is now available in a free version.  For a 30 day trial period, new Mathcad Express gives you all the capabilities of the full Mathcad Prime 2.0 version. After that it reverts to limited functionality in perpetuity.

Mathcad Express gives users the ability to spend more time solving engineering problems and less time programming, documenting, reporting and verifying their solutions.  Although it lacks the more powerful features of Mathcad Prime 2.0, such as advanced numeric functions, solving capability, Excel integration, 3D plotting, programming and symbolic, Mathcad Express is still a powerful analysis tool – and it is easy to learn and easy to use.

Mathcad Express includes the following capabilities. 

  • Create, edit, review and mark up Mathcad Prime documents – and convert and use files from older versions of Mathcad too.
  • Enter your equations in familiar maths notation, as you would write them on paper or a blackboard, and watch the results calculate automatically – and re-calculate whenever you change a variable.
  • Place equations, formulae, plots, text and images wherever you want on the page, automatically documenting your work as you go.
  • Perform a broad range of mathematical functions and operations, produce top-quality x-y plots, handle vector and matrix operators.
  • Never worry about unit-related errors – Mathcad Express seamlessly tracks units for you, maintains their integrity and accuracy and automatically identifies any inconsistencies.

Users can expect to see in-product messages with information on selected features, training, tips and tricks and easy ways to purchase the full commercial product, along with specific “Mathcad Express” headers and watermarks on worksheets.  A user who decides to upgrade to the full product will receive the full breadth of Mathcad capabilities and eliminate in-product advertising and watermarks.

New Mathcad Express – free to use forever!

Most of us like to try before we buy, which is why the free trial versions of many of the software products we supply are so popular. But the new trial version of Mathcad Prime 2.0 offers something different – something much more. It’s called Mathcad Express – a stripped down version of Mathcad that retains many of the full program’s features and functions, and is FREE for you to use for as long as you like!

When you download and install Mathcad Express, you’re given the option of a 30-day Trial of the full, unrestricted Mathcad Prime 2.0. As with previous trial versions, that gives you the opportunity to explore and evaluate all that this latest, greatest version has to offer. But if after the trial’s expired you’re not yet ready to buy the full version, you’re not left with a redundant piece of software cluttering up your system. Instead, it reverts to the free Mathcad Express. It doesn’t have advanced numeric or symbolic capabilities, linear, non-linear and differential equation solvers, Excel integration or programming functions. But it does bring you all the document handling features, intuitive equation editing and unit handling features that have made Mathcad so popular, and lets you create and view Mathcad worksheets.

It’s a simple task to upgrade to the latest, full version of Mathcad Prime from within Mathcad Express whenever you want. Until you do, or if you decide not to, you’ll still have a highly capable version of Mathcad to use in perpetuity – and it won’t cost you a penny!

You can download the 32-bit or 64-bit Windows versions of Mathcad Express, incorporating the Mathcad Prime 2.0 30-day Trial, here.
