.mcd File Extension

Developer: PTC
File type: Mathcad Document
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .mcd. Files with the file extension .mcd can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .mcd files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .mcd file?

Mathcad is one of the applications using MCD files. MCD files refer to the MathCad documents or file format that the software uses. MCD files contain the following information: functions, spreadsheets, programs, algorithms, etc. These files are mostly used for the development of products such as engineering tools as well as in performing advanced mathematical calculations using MathCad. The MCD file extension was developed by PTC as well as the MathCad software. The software was formerly developed by Mathsoft but now, it is developed by Parametric Technology Corporation. It comes with different versions all supporting Pro/ENGINEER files. It is a popular program for creating and analyzing models for disk operated systems. Automatic computations and engineering data can be created with this program. MCD files make it easy for users to use the MathCad software since they contain all the needed information the software uses to perform its functions. MCD files are categorized as data files.

how to open a .mcd file?

Launch a .mcd file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .mcd file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .mcd files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .mcd file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .mcd file will open the correct application.

Actually, Allen Razdow of MathSoft was the creator of MathCad, an engineering computation program written in DOS and released during the late Eighties. It's the first computation tool that allowed live edits into the mathematical notation while the program automatically ran calculations with instantaneous answers. The Parametric Technology Corporation (PTC) bought MathCad in 2006 and added more features to this Windows-based engineering software. From simply verifying, documenting, and recycling calculations, MathCad now expanded its capabilities that include statistical functions, symbolic expressions, 2D and 3D parametric plots, curve and regression analysis, vector and matrix operations, and simultaneous equations. Users may insert images and text aside from Math equations into the worksheet or refer to computations and methods of analysis used in other worksheets with hyperlinks. Moreover, MathCad imports data files from other applications and exports the finished worksheets into MSExcel or MathML files.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .mcd files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .mcd. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
