It is great for any manual calculation. You can lay it out as you would on paper, but the math is calculated instantly, similar to how it is in excel. It is superior to either method for most engineering calculations. Being able to copy-and-paste is very helpful for considering multiple scenarios. In some situations where you need to do the same calculation on an array of numbers, Excel is still faster.

Vuforia is free but there is a watermark on the output of it. So if you want to remove it then you have to purchase it. It's easy to use and some features like multiple targeting in images and object and surface tracking help you to achieve what you want.

Cons

  • Some of the math and text formatting aspects are a little cumbersome.
  • Converting from older Matchcad versions to the newer Mathcad Prime platform could be made easier. It should be a direct import function.

Usability

Higher-order math, despite symbolics, become tedious and variable nomenclature isn't as forgiving as other programs. Due to it's sheet-like nature, the greater the complexity the more bothersome the screen usage becomes. But it's a trade-off between a sketchpad-like interface or lines and lines of code. Pick your poison but MathCad was our choice.

MathCAD is easier to learn and faster to start with. It has more user-friendly interface and conventional style toolbox and GUI. It is really good for the beginners and those who are afraid of complex math.

Vuforia studio is well suited in cases like you wants to track objects and surface in the plane. Image recognization at multiple targets is one of the very good functionalities of EasyAR. And if you want to render 3d objects in your mobile application then it's well suited. It is free too so you can create applications at minimal costs.
