SigmaPlot is not available for Mac but there are some alternatives that runs on macOS with similar functionality. The best Mac alternative is MATLAB. It's not free, so if you're looking for a free alternative, you could try SymPy or Xcos. If that doesn't suit you, our users have ranked more than 10 alternatives to SigmaPlot and nine of them are available for Mac so hopefully you can find a suitable replacement. Other interesting Mac alternatives to SigmaPlot are QtiPlot (Paid), GraphPad Prism (Paid), Mirai Math (Free, Open Source) and IGOR Pro (Paid).
MATLAB is a numerical computing environment and programming language. Maintained by The MathWorks, MATLAB allows easy matrix manipulation, plotting of functions and data, implementation of algorithms, creation of user interfaces, and interfacing with programs in other languages.
MATLAB vs SigmaPlot opinions
Most users think MATLAB is a great alternative to SigmaPlot.
docandreore Even with the statistics package, MATLAB is not nearly as friendly and graph oriented as SigmaPlot. For example, editing statistical graphs for printing or publication is a frustrating endeavor in MATLAB, whereas SigmaPlot is designed specifically for that purpose.
SymPy is a Python library for symbolic computation. The stated goals of the library are to become a full-featured computer algebra system and to keep a simple code base to promote extensibility and comprehensibility.
Most users think SymPy is a great alternative to SigmaPlot.
GraphPad Prism is a powerful combination of basic biostatistics, curve fitting and scientific graphing in one comprehensive program. More than 100,000 scientists in over 100 countries rely on Prism to analyze, graph and present their scientific data.
