Mathcad prime API

Sorry to say but its so annoying.

I have been digging my head to get the API of mathcad prime the whole day.

I could only see discussion about the API and SDK files but not the link of any API so that I can download it

and use it in my programming.

I am very new to mathcad and without API I am not able to do anything.

If anyone had a link or document then I humbly request you to share me.

I would be very grateful.

* I am using Mathcad 30days trial version, should I have to buy Mathcad in order to use its API?

Regards,

Prarthana

Re: Mathcad prime API

The API is built in to Prime. The SDK, you have to pay for (a ridiculous amount of money too). As far as I know, it works in the trial version. What are you trying to do?

Re: Mathcad prime API

Automation definitely works in the trial version.

See this thread for additional information: NEW API for Mathcad Prime 3.1

As noted in that thread, "The API is part of Mathcad Prime 3.1 install. Look for MathcadPrimeAutomation.tlb and MathcadPrimeAutomation.dll."

Edit: the link above is a very long thread in which there is much back & forth regarding the cost of the SDK.  However, at the bottom, there is some sample code and I made a few important notes.  See the comments starting with https://www.ptcusercommunity.com/message/424595#424595

Re: Mathcad prime API

Hi Richard,

Thank your for the reply.

1.First, I want to connect ".mcdx file" using Mathcad API

2. Afer that, I want to create my own Mathcad prime addon to connect SolidWorks and Mathcad addon.

This is the task want to do but I didn't get any sample program or solution for it.

The link below shows how to use but didn't teach how to make an addon and so on.

Demonstration of Solidworks/MathCAD integration - YouTube.

Using c# I want to connect Mathcad, Worksheet and Solidworks.

Please do suggest me.

Regards,

Prarthana

Re: Mathcad prime API

PTC offers an SDK that includes code to do what you want. Unfortunately, they are asking a ridiculous $9000 for it. There is no documentation available other than the SDK.

There are a few threads on the forums with some example code. One is here: Getting Outputs with API

Re: Mathcad prime API

Did you try the Solidworks integration available from PTC?  I provided a link for you in your other post (Solidworks to Mathcad Addin).

Re: Mathcad prime API

You can without any problem use the API with the trial and also with Mathcad express.

The API is found at:

C:\Program Files\PTC\Mathcad Prime 3.1\Ptc.MathcadPrime.Automation.dll

It is possible to figure out most of the stuff by looking at the object browser.
