.xmcd File Extension

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

what is a .xmcd file?

Files that have the .xmcd extension are known as Mathcad Worksheet Files because they are XML-based worksheets that Mathcad software created. Mathcad is a program used for engineering calculations and it was acquired by the Parametric Technology Corporation although its original developer was Mathsoft. The files containing this extension that are used by this application contain elements that are either math or text. They help in engineering processes especially in terms of verifying and validating calculations regarding engineering. These files are mostly used by some companies, engineers, as well as developers when designing and manufacturing some products to be distributed and sold. These .xmcd files and the software make mathematical equations, graphs, texts, etc. easier to do. Applications associated with this .xmcd extension are also used to open .xmcd files and these applications are PTC Mathcad, Mathcad Professional, Adobe Reader as well as .xmcd file converter and .xmcd file editor software.

how to open a .xmcd file?

Launch a .xmcd 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 .xmcd 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 .xmcd files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .xmcd file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .xmcd file will open the correct application.

applications that open a .xmcd file

PTC Mathcad

PTC Mathcad

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.
SMath Studio

SMath Studio

SMath Studio a freeware, closed-source mathematical notebook program developed by Andrey Ivashov. It is a program similar to Mathcad that is available for Linux, for Windows, Windows Mobile (Smartphones, PPC, and communicators), and is going to be ported to Java. The program’s interface is 'paper'-like and it contains numerous computing features like graphing functions in two or three dimensions, matrix operations including determinants, finding roots of polynomials and functions, numeric integration, and solving differential equations. SMath supports 18-th interface languages and can work with matrices, complex numbers, vectors, fractions, and infinities. Other features include the capability to create 2D and 3D graphs, availability of inserting text regions in a worksheet, unlimited size of worksheets and their quantity, support of parameters such as constants and user-defined parameters, and the capability to copy, paste, cut, and delete of expressions and/or parts of expressions. This application contains an integrated mathematical reference book.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .xmcd 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, .xmcd. 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.
