How to convert XMCD file into MCDX format?

Re: How to convert XMCD file into MCDX format?

Prime 4 in Attach

Nice weekend!

Re: How to convert XMCD file into MCDX format?

Thanks guys!

Re: How to convert XMCD file into MCDX format?

Hi!

 

I have a .xmcd file that I need to convert to a .mcdx file. I'm having trouble installing MathCad 15 on my computer but I have a MathCad Prime 4.0. Enyone willing to help with the conversion?

See please the attach!

Works like a charm! Thank you!

Sorry!

But the Find(x) - > not work in Prime! Try press Recalculate Button!

In Prime only Find(x) = (numeric not symbolic)/

We must use the solve operator!

No, not necessarily.

It doesn't look like symbolic evaluation is really needed here. So we can still use the solve block. As you wrote we can not evaluate a solve block symbolically (its a shame!), so we simply have to provide guess values for the solved for variables.

Its also a good idea to assign the result to variables so you can use them later if needed.

See attached.

 

EDIT: THATS RIDICULOUS! EVEN WHEN ATTACHING A ZIP-FILE I GET THE ERROR  MESSAGE THAT THE FILETYPE DOES NOT MATCH THE CONTENT!!

REASON COULD BE EITHER AN ADDITIONAL DOT IN THE FILE NAME OR A SPACE IN THE FILENAME. AFTER RENAMING THE FILE IT WORKED.

IS THIS FORUM SOFTWARE NOT AWARE THAT WE ALREADY HAVE 2018 AND NOT 1980?

Yes? we can use the solve operator or the Find()= function but not Find()->

Correct and that's exactly what I wrote above! We must not use the symbolic solve command, we can still use the solve block if we evaluate it numerically and provide guesses. And as far as I see in that sheet, symbolic evaluation is not really necessary at all (while admittedly its convenient here, as we don't need guesses).

And let me also repeat that I think its a shame that PTC killed so many valuable features,  like being able to evaluate a solve block symbolically. But, alas, we already know for quite a long time the Prime is a dead end - sad story.

I have worked a little with my hands not with my mind and... we can use a vector T.

But we can work with minds too and think about a... finite elements method with a programming this task and solving it more elagnt...
