Likelihood to Recommend

Autodesk Tinkercad

[AutoCAD] Tinkercad is designed to be a free software that can handle the majority of situations that beginners would see in both modeling and 3-D printing environments. This would work excellently in young learners situation such as middle and high schools. However, it can be easily utilized by adults as a stepping stone beginner program to get the hang of modeling and printing tools. [Autodesk] Tinkercad should not be used by any professional organization that rely on more advanced tools and simulation aspects found in real software.

LabVIEW

LabView is a great tool to connect your sensors to your data aquisition hardware. It makes it really easy to set-up a data acquisition routine that meets your individual requirements. I, as an engine researcher, find it very well suited for engine experimentation. For any other programming needs, i.e. not data acquisition, I would not recommend using LabView because of its graphical programming architecture. The architecture makes it a great tool for Data Aquisition but puts at a disadvantage when it comes to other computational tasks, e.g. making a thermodynamic engine model. For those applications having text-based programming is better suited

Pros

Autodesk Tinkercad

  • Tinkercad is a great baseline CAD program. This program is easy to implement and train people in.
  • After on a short period of time my students are able to create complex forms using Tinkercads pre-generated shapes and holes.
  • The Tinkercad provided projects aid in pushing the learning experience even further and reinforce the ideas that I train on and help my students explore the program before designing their own complex sculptural forms.

LabVIEW

  • Being a graphical programming language, it is a little easier for a layperson to understand than text based programming languages.
  • The program has very good debugging features.
  • Support is good.
  • There are a variety of tutorials which make it easier to do something that you aren't sure about.

Cons

Autodesk Tinkercad

  • Tinkercad is an online tool. If the internet is off then Tinkercad stops.
  • Tinkercad is mostly for beginners and students of 3d design. Its capabilities have a limit. Besides Tinkercad touch screen device capabilities are also limited.
  • Rendering options are very limited, nearly none. There is no lighting feature. You could only give plain colours to your models.

LabVIEW

  • Barrier to entry is large
  • Install times are crazy
  • Just in time help needs to be more apparent (most students do not know about the examples section)

Alternatives Considered

Autodesk Tinkercad

It's easy to use interface, and its prebuild shapes features with easy modification stand it perfectly against all these.

I recommended this to every designer.

LabVIEW

We chose LabVIEW over MATLAB due to the integration with hardware and the graphical programming interface. Also, the ability to use LabVIEW with FPGAs and real-time processors without having to make large changes to the code base or swapping to a separate programming environment was a big benefit since we don't know what hardware will be suitable for each customer application.

Return on Investment

Autodesk Tinkercad

  • Positive return on any productivity because its a free software
  • Negative return because it may take less time to just train on advanced software like autocad or solidworks
  • Very useful for training

LabVIEW

  • We use NI's data acquisition hardware as well which has made it possible to get whatever experimental data we need to get for our studies.
  • LabView has made it possible for us to post-process and tailor the raw data to our specific needs.
  • With a responsive customer support team, NI allows us to expand our data acquisition and post-processing capabilities to carry out the kind of research projects that we would want.
