Arrow Okino Software Product Feature Comparisons

This table outlines the very basic differences between Okino's NuGraf and PolyTrans software products. NuGraf is the 'elder brother' of the more universally well known PolyTrans program. It has a fuller user interface designed for those that wish to spend more time within the software whereas the PolyTrans user interface was designed to be quite simple to learn and use. The PolyTrans user interface is basically the "Beginner Mode" of the NuGraf software. Okino only develops one program, NuGraf, but derives PolyTrans for ease of customer use. To read about the current main and shared feature list of both programs, please click here.

Please keep in mind that Okino primarily sells "CAD conversion solutions" which solve anything from common to very complex conversion problems of our core customers. We do not, in any regard, sell our software based on the user interface features listed partially in the following checkmark list. Many or most of the features listed in the following table are "nice to have" but have little to do with our software's usage as a primary CAD & DCC conversion system.
