Excellent alternative to MathCad and it's free!
by Marco Finlay
This has been a great step up from Excel. Extensive (and extensible) support for engineering units opens a new world for well documented everyday analysis. Thank you!

Great free software! I am enjoying watching its progress and use every day for reinforced concrete calculations and client presentations! Hope it gorows well"

As a civil engineer, over the years I have frequently used MathCAD for not only performing but also documenting calculations. With PTC dropping perpetual licensing, my recommendation to all the junior engineers I train is to give SMath Studio a serious look. While not a turnkey replacement for MathCAD, it provides most of the functionality and power at an incredible price. Already a wonderful program filling a key niche spot between a numerical calculator like Octave, and a CAS like Maxima, the expanding plugin and 3rd party development is on the rise and this project's future keeps getting even brighter. Much consideration must be given by any engineer or business before they settle on a software for adopting into the workflow. Although not open-source in the strictest sense, the development community is similar to what you would find in any first class OSS software project. The current owner of the SMath Project has also agreed to release the source code under open source license should he not be able to continue the project. So do not let the cost (your time) of learning SMath Studio and migrating your MathCAD computation sheets scare you. This project is here to stay.

This is a must have software for engineering student.
smath studio. It´s a good tool.

SMath Studio in the Cloud is ideal to show calculations to my students. They only have to click at the internet hyperlink. Teacher at school of mechanical engineering, bachelor level.

Amazing math tool. I use it almost daily. I'm a civil engineer and Smath Studio quickly became one of my favorite tools to "hand check" a lot of my calculations.
by Fernando Siedschlag
I strongly encourage professionals who use the software for commercial purpose to donate. SMath Studio, in my opinion, is better suited for documenting engineering calculations than MathCAD Prime 3, which is commercially developed, and is considered to be the software of choice by many.
As engineering professionals, we all pay yearly professional license fee; if we donate a fraction of that fee to Andrey it will let him to continue working on this extremely useful and functional tool.
Thank you, Andrey! Long Live SMath

I've used this software for several years and can not use anything else for work. I'm a mechanical Engineer and use this for any calculations I do.
1) To show and check my work
2) to set values and write descriptions so I can reuse my formulas for other projects.
This is better than any calculator.
Thank you Smath for such a great software.
by Shawn Paul
Wonderful software, the cloud option is unbeatable for mac users and for using public/shared computers.
I just discovered this project and WOW!: What a great alternative to MathCAD. I encourage engineers and scientists to try this app, you will be amazed by its power and versatility. Thanks to developers!
by Diego Nacif
I hope you keep on developing this great software!
Thank you very much, it is easy and very efficient.
If someone could help you to bring it closer to a nice text editor, it would probably replace Word for many engineers and other scientists.
You should definitely try and use SMath Studio. This “one-man” project is really awesome. I can state, with no doubt, that every Mathcad user will be rather surprised.

An amazing math tool, a must-have for engineers and scientists everywhere. (And it's not bad as a quick expression evaluator, either.)
by Mike Williams
If you are thinking about getting MathCAD for your business or personal use you may want to try SMath Studio first. SMath Studio is a free math program with easy to use intuitive "paper-like" interface. If SMath Studio meets your needs then look no further and consider donating to promote further development of this great program. On the SMath Studio forum, the developer and forum community are very receptive to help questions, bug reports, and feature requests.
This fantastic free alternative to Mathcad is going from strength to strength and I am really enjoying watching its progress. Andrey has produced something that is genuinely useful, multiplatform, fun to use and, most importantly of all, he listens to his users. Well worth a download.

Taking everything into consideration, we can state that SMath Studio is a powerful application that lets you create and calculate even complex expressions, with options to plot graphs and solve matrices. The workspace lets anyone quickly accommodate regardless of experience, while the auto-complete feature and rich library of content make sure you learn to love math.
