MathCAD Express for an engineering office

Hi everybody.

I started to work for a little engineering company. I think the "MathCAD Express" can help us a lot to calculate beams. My english is not perfect and I dont know what is legal with the express. Can a company legally use it for free?

Thank you for your answers.
Have a nice day.

As far as I know there are no restrictions in that respect. Anybody can use it for free and for lifetime.

 

Success!

As per PTC article, it seems you can't..

Re: MathCAD Express for an engineering office

There is no restriction placed here: http://support.ptc.com/support/mathcad_downloads.htm

where it says: "PTC Mathcad Express is free-for-life engineering calculation software. You get unlimited use of the most popular capabilities in PTC Mathcad Prime allowing you to solve, document, share and reuse vital calculations."

Your argument:

Since I, an Express user, having no maintenance contract, can only read the question, not the answer, I can only assume that the answer is not important to me, so for me it's: YES, you can use Prime Express also for commercial purposes.

I would have thought the same as Luc; but the lawyers were thorough.  On page 7 (of 29) of the referenced document:

Mathcad Express is limited to usage for personal purposes, and may not be used to benefit any business or for any commercial purposes or for any business purposes.

 

Re: MathCAD Express for an engineering office

Thorough... maybe. But clear: Certainly not!

If you go to this advertising page for Prime Express, there's no limitation to usage at all.

That's what lawyers are for!  🙂
