Today GEOMATE released GrafiCalc 2011 with a new tag line “Engineer First – Design Later”. Founder Shyamal Roy refers to his product as the Excel for Engineers. The press release mentions that the user interface has been enhanced. But don’t keep your hopes too high. The UI stays pretty much the same. Just that the visual feedback has been enhanced a bit.
A commercial license costs $995 ($1295 in Europe). There is still no trial version. You are expected to watch a set of four demo videos here and then decide whether you understand what’s going on. If you do you and you think that the software can help you design better then you need to click the “Purchase” link. Seems like this approach has been working for the company because they have all these customers.
