Did You Know? New Engineering Notebook in PTC Creo, Powered by PTC Mathcad
PTC Creo 3.0 M030 offers new integration with PTC Mathcad, which allows users to better connect engineering calculations directly into the product design process. New functionality, referred collectively as the Engineering Notebook power by PTC Mathcad, allow you to directly embed PTC Mathcad worksheets into a PTC model at both the part or assembly level. Once embedded, worksheets can be opened, edited and saved within the Creo model. Furthermore, all design details contained in the worksheet are automatically linked to the Creo model. These features make it easy for users to capture engineering knowledge and design intent inside of their PTC Creo models.

Additionally, parameters can be shared between PTC Creo and PTC Mathcad. Calculations from PTC Mathcad can be quickly and easily pushed into PTC Creo and used to drive the dimensions within a model, empowering analysis driven design
Inputting parameters from PTC Mathcad into PTC Creo
Similarly, PTC Creo parameters can be pushed back to PTC Mathcad and analyzed using Mathcad’s extensive array of mathematical tools and functions, allowing for verification and validation of the design. PTC Mathcad input and output regions are made available in the parameters table within PTC Creo. They can also be used in Relations like any other native PTC Creo parameter.
