What is a SAT file?

The .sat file type is mainly found in files associated with the Spatial 3D ACIS Modeler. The. sat files contain computer aided design representation of system components. These CAD representations are frequently used in modeling objects that are in non-sequential modes. In this mode, surfaces or volume objects are defined primarily to be used as objects for non-imaging applications such as illumination systems and/or stray-light analysis.

SAT files are ASCII text files that may be viewed with a simple text editor. A SAT file contains carriage returns, white space and other formatting tools that make it readable to the human eye.

3D ACIS engine is known to support various CAD applications. 3D ACIS is also considered best for creating applications that comprise hybrid modeling components. ACIS can store modeling information in external files using the .sat format. The .sat files are also distinguished as an open format. Users can retrieve and open the geometric models using external applications, even if these programs are not ACIS- based.
