Re: SolidWorks - MathCAD Integration

The current free downloaded sample of Mathcad integrating to Solidworks was developered in Mathcad 15 on XP-32 with Solidworks 2010. It was tested against Solidworks 2011 as well. This version should work with 2009, although I did not test it. The previous version supported 2008 and 2009.

Let me know if you have any troubles.

You can find some comment in this blog post: http://blogs.ptc.com/2013/05/02/points-lines-and-triangles-oh-my/

"John has indicated that the timeframe for Solidworks 12-13 integration will most likely occur in the release of PTC Mathcad Prime 4.0".

Re: SolidWorks - MathCAD Integration

A new plug-in "SolidWorks - PTC Mathcad Prime 3.1 Lite Integration" for Mathcad Prime and SolidWorks 2014/2015 integration is available, here:

Re: SolidWorks - MathCAD Integration

Thanks for providing the integration between Mathcad and SolidWorks.  The cammand I am using is "regasm c:\swmc\mathcadprime.dll /codebase".  I have tried the installation process and get the following error:

"RegAsm : error RA0000 : Unable to located input assembly 'c:\swmc\mathcadprime' or one of its dependencies'

The following files are located in c:\swmc:

  mathcadprime.dll

  solidworkstools.dll

  ptc.mathcadprime.automation.dll

I have run the regasm command in both the "framework" and "framework64" directories.

Any suggestions would be appreciated

Re: SolidWorks - MathCAD Integration

Hi David, I had the same issue when I installed it. For me, it was because I was on a 64-bit machine so the installation instructions in "SolidWorks-Mathcad Prime Integration User Guide.pdf" were slightly wrong.

Instead of steps b and c, I had to type the following command:

C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319\RegAsm.exe C:\Mathcad\MathcadPrime.dll /codebase

where "C:\Mathcad" represents the directory where your MathcadPrime.dll and SolidWorksTools.dll files are located.

If there are spaces in any of the folder names in the path, you may need to surround the path with double quotes: " "

Then, in Solidworks, do File->Open-> and find MathcadPrime.dll and open it.

Nothing will happen (the screen might flicker), but now when you do Tools->Add-Ins the Mathcad add-in should show up so you can enable it.
