Functionality

Mechanical Expressions provides a wide range of functionality that can be used as the basic building blocks to explore spatial relationships and learn geometric concepts. Mechanical Expressions lets you specify mechanics problems with symbolic constraints rather than entering numeric values. You can also use a combination of numeric and symbolic values for inputs. Request output measurements in symbolic form, as a mathematical expression. Numeric output is also available.
