.SAT File Extension
File TypeACIS SAT 3D Model File
What is a SAT file?
An SAT file is a 3D model saved in Spatial's ACIS solid modeling format. It stores three-dimensional geometry information in a standard text file format. SAT files are used for exchanging 3D data between multiple systems and are supported by many 3D CAD programs that include Spatial's 3D ACIS Modeler component.
The SAT extension stands for "Standard ACIS Text." As that acronym may have led you to guess, SAT files are stored in an ASCII text format. The data stored within SAT files can also be saved in binary if needed, using the .SAB file format.
NOTE: The SAT format is used across many different industries, including CAD, CAM, CAE, AEC, CMM, 3D animation, and shipbuilding.
