Swift Calcs Essentials Course Now Available!


The New Engineering Calculator

Today, engineering calculations are often done in 30-year-old software that was designed for general purposes and all sorts of users. Swift Calcs is a web-based calculator and documentation suite designed specifically for scientists and engineers as an alternative to paper, spreadsheets, and cumbersome computation packages. In Swift Calcs, you see equations transform into textbook format on-the-fly as you type, and perform calculations with full unit support.

You can work with variables, functions, vectors, arrays, and matrices to perform virtually any calculation, and plot data easily on charts and graphs. You can access a wide library of material data and properties, and, with a built-in integration between both Onshape and Autodesk Fusion 360, you can connect your calculations directly to your 3D models.

In this course, you will learn how to harness the Swift Calcs system to perform engineering design and analysis calculations quickly and easily. Getting started in the course, you will learn the basics of interacting with Swift Calcs, including navigating the user interface and working with projects and worksheets.

As you move through the course, you will learn how to create new calculations and enter mathematical expressions using the what you see is what you get (WYSIWYG) interface in Swift Calcs, where mathematical expressions automatically are formatted as you type in the textbook style equations.

This course also takes a deep dive into performing calculations to learn a wide range of functionality in the Swift Calcs platform, including defining user variables, defining and using functions, calculating with units, solving equations, creating plots, and accessing material in thermodynamic databases. Finally, since Swift Calcs is a cloud-based application, you will learn how to share and collaborate with clients, colleagues, or the public, and even how to print your work out.

The SolidProfessor Swift Calcs 2017 Course is included in SolidProfessor Standard, Professional, and Premium memberships.
