Re: PTC Mathcad Prime 3.0 now available

Of course nothing is so linear... and I also have seen the world. So that comparison has been made and is continously corrected and appreciated, believe me. Life as it is, no matter how or where, should be appreciated.

By the way, USSR cartoons were very very good ones... the bad thing was that we were exposed ONLY to USSR (and, of course, cuban) cartoons and that was the subject of never-ending-jokes and punch lines.Some of us were even forced to study russian (me, for example) instead of english as a second language. But I forgot almost everything...

However, the good ones always survive: Chejov, Pushkin, Dovstoievski, Tarkovski, Nikita Mijalkov, Perelman books, Matveev courses, Landau-Lifshitz books... Oh, those MIR editons, I have them here with me, I travelled with all those physics and mathematics books... As you can see, professor, those are evidences of a good appreciation of a non-linear reality.

Can you speak spanish?? I mean, to communicate to a wide audience in spanish??

Sorry, no.

PS

During the Stalinist terror one investigator asked one professor who was arrested, what foreign languages ​​he knows. The professor said that he knowes Latin.

Sentence - a Latin spy. or

Re: PTC Mathcad Prime 3.0 now available

I don't see in the features summary whether 2D plots can now have two separate Y axes, like M15. Hello? Vector magnitude and phase on the same plot is really important, and they require different axes! I have to resort to M15 whenever I need that, and that is getting really old.

Sorry, but M15 has not two separate X axes.

I need it for Kelvin and Celsius temperature scale for example

And second.

M15 has not two separate scale of one Y axe.

Re: PTC Mathcad Prime 3.0 now available

Here's an example plot of two Y axes from M15:

I need this kind of plot frequently. Even Excel does this, and it's hard to believe that P3 still doesn't.

You can insert Excel in Prime and have your plot.

But sorry You must remember that there is not in Excel a plot with 3-d, 4-th etc Y axe

Re: PTC Mathcad Prime 3.0 now available

I wondered if you could insert an Excel plot. I saw that you could insert Excel data. That's really klugey though, exchanging data and plots back and forth, especially if you need several plots like this in a document.

You're right about the sophisticated graphing of Prime, but that makes it even more puzzling that they don't even have fully functional 2-D graphing. You'd think they'd finish 2D before they started on 3D.

Of course not, but at least as functional as their previous product M15.

Re: PTC Mathcad Prime 3.0 now available

It is as if PTC does not have a clue what this software is actually used for. It is not supposed to be some stupid iphone app used for simply "liking" math. It is supposed to be a serious tool for writing proper scientific and engineering worksheets. That is what v15 was at least attempting to do. Prime does have some promising improvements that I appreciate. But PTC really needs to stop releasing Prime until the product is actually COMPLETE from a v15 functionality perspective! It is now after nearly 3 years still alpha test software at best!!!

In the mean time, advance and release v16 with real improvements or stop charging us for yearly support on v15! I, for one, cannot afford to just keep paying for NOTHING!

Right you are.

I recall reading in some post that PTC initially was determined, despite objections by a technical advisory board, to develop a "MathCad light". As euphoria didn't settle in (probably due to stubornly unteachable customers) with Prime 1.0, PTC realized that MP doesn't deliver what customers want and started to shell out more alpha versions of MP for fear of loosing clients. What we see now is the result of using advertisement instead of engineering.

As you are under maintainance, I guess you should be able to follow the instructions here

http://communities.ptc.com/servlet/JiveServlet/download/222145-57148/Gobal%20Support%20license%20ret...

to update your license file.

Re: PTC Mathcad Prime 3.0 now available

Ah yes, but too bad for me following the link contained in those instructions results in a "document not found" error message. Mathcad licensing has not worked properly for me since PTC got their mitts on the product. Sorry guys, but you get an "F minus" from me regarding customer support that is as obtuse as the federal tax code. Nice work, PTC!

Bad, even their pdf's are broken 😉

The link obviously was meant to be http://www.ptc.com/cgi/cs/apps/lpg/lpg.pl , as you sure already found out yourself.

As you used Mathcad already in pre-PTC times, I wonder why you would voluntarily switch from MC15 to Prime.

Re: PTC Mathcad Prime 3.0 now available

I have upgraded to Prime3 and found it to be usless. There no 2D plotting. 2D plotting is used for:

1. Pesentation of data

2. Checking data

3. Looking for tends

4. And More

I have been paying my maintenance for three years now and have not recieved a product that can be used. What we are requesting is basic to engineering. I am going to continue to use MacthCAD15 until I can find another program.
