What are SAT files and how to open them

Are you having problems opening a SAT file or just wondering what they contain? We explain what these files are used for and show you software that we know can open or otherwise handle your files.

What is a SAT file?

SAT files have multiple uses, and Standard ACIS Text 3D Model is one of them.

Standard ACIS Text 3D Model

These files are associated with the Spatial 3D ACIS Modeler and contain a 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. Users can retrieve and open the geometric models using external applications, even if these programs are not ACIS- based.
