What is an AutoCAD SAT file?

An AutoCAD SAT (ACIS Solid Model) file is a file format used to store 3D solid models created in AutoCAD or other CAD software. SAT files are based on the ACIS (Advanced Computer Implementation Software) modeling kernel and represent 3D geometry.

Usage: SAT files allow for the exchange of 3D solid models between different CAD software applications.

Examples of Use:

  1. Interoperability: Share 3D solid models between AutoCAD and other CAD systems like SolidWorks or Rhino.
  2. Collaboration: Collaborate with partners or clients who use different CAD software by exchanging SAT files.
  3. Archiving: Store 3D models in SAT format for long-term archiving or future reference.

AutoCAD SAT files facilitate the sharing and collaboration of 3D solid models across different CAD platforms and applications.
