Definetely when needing an image target based AR experience, I'd go with Vuforia Engine, the implementation is pretty straightforward (at least when using UNITY SDK), it is well documented and there are plenty of examples to start with. I wouldn't recommend it yet for tracking objects or environments if it is for commercial purposes, because it tends to fail from time to time from my experience.

  • Data synchronization with off-server data can be difficult in several cases.
  • It's okay if the WT section and the drawing are distinct, but it shouldn't be there.
