Microstation is a CAD software platform for 2D and 3D design and drafting, created by Bentley Systems. Its geometric kernel is Parasolid. It is widely used in the architectural and engineering industries and allows generating 2D/3D vector graphics objects and elements and includes BIM features.
Mathcad is computer software primarily intended for the verification, validation, documentation and re-use of engineering calculations. It is used by engineers and scientists in various disciplines – most often those of mechanical, chemical, electrical, and civil engineering.
Mathcad is part of a broader product development system developed by PTC, and often utilized for the many analytical touch points within the systems engineering processes. It integrates with PTC’s other solutions that aid product development, including Creo Elements/Pro, Windchill, and Creo Elements/View. Its live feature-level integration with Creo Elements/Pro enables Mathcad analytical models to be directly used in driving CAD geometry.
A CAD file is an output of a CAD software, containing key information about the designed object: its geometry and topology representation, 3D model hierarchy, metadata, and visual attributes depending on the format of the file.Read more
