PolyTrans|CAD+DCC is the leading industry standard for comprehensive visualization and data translation
of all 3D CAD/CAM, VR/AR and Digital Content Creation data. With its support of virtually every 2D and 3D
file format you will need no other tool to visualize 3D models and translate them to your format of choice.
With a user base of the entire 3D industry, and being in use constantly by 3D professionals like yourself,
PolyTrans works 'out of the box' in the most complex and demanding of situations - it simply works!
Over the last 3 decades PolyTrans
has pioneered and set the standards for crack-free and error-free CAD conversions,
3D scene conversion & size optimization, CAD model reduction & "instance-node" compression,
trimmed-NURBS & BREP solids + curve conversion,
bi-directional animation transfer, skinned mesh & skeletons conversions,
automatic bitmap conversion and many more innovative solutions.
And above all else, Okino is well known for its
personal, hands-on and fast technical support plus customer relations. We are one of the
most knowledgeable and experienced companies in the 3D realm, for which our focus and interest is to bring
proper understanding and awareness to all of our new + existing users.
Important purchasing information: most customers purchase the base-level PolyTrans or NuGraf program and one or more optional add-on modules. Please be careful to review which modules you need before purchasing (add-on modules can be purchased at any time). The PolyTrans-for-Maya sub-product is configured as PolyTrans + DCC/Pack module. The native PolyTrans-for-3ds-Max plug-in system comes with each base-level copy of PolyTrans or NuGraf. Most Okino customers will purchase at least one of: CAD/Pack, DCC/Pack and/or Granite/Pack.
(and its elder brother NuGraf) are stand-alone
programs which were written with
one purpose in mind: to produce
the most mathematically accurate, error free and robust conversions between
all major 3D CAD, DCC, VR/AR and VisSim file formats. PolyTrans
was the first such program to market and
hence has a long standing reputation of
providing quality conversions as well as top
notch technical support
from its development team.
Common Solutions & Benefits
The 'go to' tool for 80-98% reduction of CAD models for VR/AR in Unity, Unreal Engine, Microsoft HoloLens, Oculus Rift and under-powered tablet devices.
Converts & optimizes all major CAD formats
to 3ds Max, Maya, CINEMA 4D, LightWave, Blender, OpenFlight and dozens more file
formats and 3D programs (full list on WEB site).
No CAD model rebuilding necessary. Just import the CAD data as proper "BREP solids" geometry, convert & start your production work.

Okino CAD-centric polygon reduction system.
Bidirectional conversions between all D.C.C (animation and digital content creation) programs.
Tolerance-based, error-free animation conversion and top notch smooth skinned
mesh & skeleton conversion amongst 3ds Max, Maya, CINEMA 4D, LightWave, Collada, FBX, DirectX, U3D, more.

These two special, native plug-in versions of PolyTrans
3ds Max and
For well over
3 decades they have provided
the industry standard for
add-on 3D CAD, DCC and VisSim converters
inside of 3ds Max and Maya. This is one
of the most popular aspects of PolyTrans
in the D.C.C. community. PolyTrans-for-Maya
is available via the "DCC/Pack" license. Note: Okino natively supports CINEMA 4D (.c4d), LightWave (lws/lwo) and Softimage (XSI) (dotXSI) file formats so no native plug-in modules are needed for those animation programs.
Popular uses include import of all CAD file formats into 3ds Max and Maya (SolidWorks, ProE/Creo native, STEP, IGES and dozens more), bidirectional conversion of complete scenes between 3ds Max and Maya, cross conversion of OpenFlight VizSim databases, cross conversion of DirectX files with skinning, excellent bidirectional LightWave conversions, and many more long established problem-solving solutions for 3ds Max and Maya users.
Optional Add-On Modules

"PolyTrans is a true 'workhorse' application.
I've used it frequently on very large
files and it has not choked, crashed, or needed to
be reinstalled in years, and this is on Mac OSX running Parallels
This software has become the indispensible hub of my
daily work." Mark Banas, MAB3D.com
" We purchased PolyTrans and used it
for 3D data conversion and optimization
of datasets created for the NASA MER
space program (Mars
Exploration Rover Mission). It is fantastic
software. My colleagues at another NASA
center spent days using three software
what took me minutes using PolyTrans
alone (polygon reduction in batch mode
a charm). I just wanted to thank you
for creating such a great tool." Boris
Rabin, Visualization Development Lead,
NASA/Ames Research Center,
" I very rarely praise a piece of software
but PolyTrans is nothing short of excellent
and is the most used piece of software in our
department. It is generally accepted within
the modelling and graphics team that PolyTrans
greatly improves our work flow and efficiency
particularly with the seemless plugin to Maya
and the accurate conversion from one format
to another in either graphics or geometry. We
would be lost without it." Lazaros Kastanis,
immersive visualisation specialist, University
of Queensland's Advanced Computational Modelling
