It’s here! We’ve been getting pretty excited over the past few weeks as we learned more and more about what the latest version of Mathcad, Prime 3.1, would deliver – and now we can share that with you as the new version has been officially launched.
Many of the new features of Prime 3.1 have been included in response to the demand from Mathcad users. A case in point is the inclusion of a Global Definitions Operator, a popular function in Mathcad 15 and earlier versions but until now unavailable in Mathcad Prime. Although Prime 2.0 featured a Definitions Operator that let you assign a value to a variable, that assignation wouldn’t apply to previous instances of that variable. Now in Prime 3.1 the value you assign can be applied to the defined variable throughout your worksheet, instantly. That will make life a whole lot easier for very many Mathcad users.
There’s a lot more too. A significantly enhanced calculation engine allows more complex equations to be solved even more quickly, while faster matrix decomposition functions support pivoting and complex numbers. Live maths can now be incorporated right into your text, and you can now easily create standardized templates for your worksheets. You can even reuse existing algorithms that have already been coded in C, C++, Fortran etc. You can read about these and all the other new and improved features of Mathcad Prime 3.1 here – there’s a great video there too!
We believe that with this new version, Mathcad Prime has really come of age. Whether you’re entirely new to Mathcad or you’re using an older version, surely now is the time to start benefitting from the amazing usability, flexibility and extensive functionality that Prime 3.1 offers?
