Argus ONE Student Version FAQ
For Students Only! Am I allowed to use Argus ONE Student Version?
  The Argus ONE Student version should be used only by students. It must not be used for research purposes or any commercial applications. By installing and using the Argus ONE student version you accept the Argus ONE license agreement and the additional limitations of use for educational purposes only. If you have any questions please contact us at the address listed below.
Modules? Which Argus ONE modules are included in the student version?
All of the Argus ONE modules are included in the student version:
  • GIS Module
  • Grid Module
  • Tri Mesh Module
  • Quad Mesh Module
Limitations? What are the limitations of the Student Version?
The Argus ONE Student Version features all of Argus ONE commercial version functionality. The only limitation introduced is that projects with meshes or grids with more than ~2000 nodes, element or blocks can not be used in the plane (2D). However if you use Argus ONE with a 3D or quasi 3D model you can build models as large as you want, given that each "model layer" does not exceed the limit. This limitation is implemented in the following cases:
  • Saving and Opening is limited to projects which contain less than 2000 nodes, elements or grid cells.
  • Exporting meshes or grids larger than the maximum allowed, are disabled.
  • SUTRA-GUI 3D in not supported
Other differences? Is the student version different from the commercial one?
The only other differences between the student and the commercial versions are "cosmetic" differences:
  • The Greetings dialog states that you are about to use a student version and you are required to hit the Accept key each time you start Argus ONE.
  • The Argus icon at the top right of the Argus ONE window has the word Student in red above the icon.
  • When printing from the student version a weak gray banner will appear across some of the pages.
