SAT file format is used by 3D ACIS Modeler software. SAT files store 3D geometry data in plain text format.
SAT file are used for exchanging 3D data between various modeling environments, such as 3D animation software or software used in shipping industry. Geometry data is used also for non-sequential modeling of objects, for example, for modeling lighting systems or light scattering. SAT files are supported by many CAE, AEC, CAD, CMM and CAM software given they have 3D model ACIS component.
SAT format stores data as ASCII text, i.e. as plain text. SAT file structure isn’t complicated, and the file may be viewed using any standard text editor. A binary version of SAT format, called SAB, also exists.
When you install one of the applications from the list of programs that you found here, you should be able to open or edit the file with the SAT extension without any issue. However, if you still have problems with this, you may use the option of SAT file conversion to a different format.
We hope we helped you solve the problem with the SAT file. If you do not know where you can download the application from our list, click on the link (which is the name of the program) - you will find more information there on the location where to download the secure setup version of the required application.
There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the SAT file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).
First - the SAT file may be incorrectly associated with the application installed to support it. In this case, you need to change this association by yourself. To do this, right-click on the SAT file that you want to edit, click "Open with" and then select the program from the list that you have installed. After this operation, the problems with opening the SAT file should be solved.
Second - the file you want to open can simply be damaged. Then, the best solution is to find a new version of given file, or download it again from the same source as before (maybe for some reason in the previous session the download of the SAT file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
If you have additional information about the SAT file, we will be grateful if you share it with our users. To do this, use the form here and send us your information on SAT file.
