    • I have started using it. It is like MathCAD15. Guest • Aug 2020 • 0 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • I have tried it. Like others said, it looks the same as Mathcad15 (best interface in my opinion, I dislike prime). Also, I like that when you put an unit you have to put ' first, so you don't have issues with naming variables that could be the same as the units. niksfish2Oct 2019 Disagree   Agree
    • SMath Studio is the best approximation to Mathcad in interface feel and features. The main shortcomings of SMath Studio relate to plots and some plug-ins, but it's only a matter of time before they catch up with Mathcad. Guest • Mar 2018 • 6 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Free to commercial use. Interface is almost like Mathcad15. Guest • Feb 2017 • 10 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree

    • Redundant display of equations and data. No auto-resolve when changing a variable or constant content upstream to an equation. Works more like a command prompt line than like a equation editor. Not a proper format for documentation of calculations. Painful handling of units. Guest • Oct 2019 Disagree   Agree

    • Those are python libraries used for advanced computation data mining and machine learning Guest • Jul 2020 Disagree   Agree
    • It is no spreadsheet, there is no symbolic manipulation (Maple) and the formulas are not represented as formulas, but as text. Guest • Mar 2020 Disagree   Agree
    • As another comment notes, they're not even close to the same thing. Guest • Sep 2019 Disagree   Agree
    • They are both math related, but otherwise have little in common. Mathcad is lower powered on the calculations side, but has natural-language style interface. SciPy is a high powered math programming language that doesn't even try to present a natural interface. Guest • Apr 2019 • 3 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
