Learn how to convert ACIS to 3DM with CAD Exchanger
ACIS geometric modeling kernel is used by many software developers in industries such as computer-aided design (CAD), computer-aided manufacturing (CAM), computer-aided engineering (CAE), architecture, engineering and construction (AEC), coordinate-measuring machine (CMM), 3D animation, and shipbuilding.
ACIS has also been used as the foundation of the Shape Manager kernel used by Autodesk in its applications. So the ACIS format is a preferred file format when exchanging data with Autodesk apps.
ACIS file extensions are .sat and .sab
A 3DM file is a native file format for 3D models in Rhinoceros CAD application software. It contains surface, point and curve information.
3DM files can be exported in both NURBS (non-uniform rational B-spline) and polygon mesh representations, making it possible for other CAD / CAM / CAE / graphic design software to edit those models.
In addition to Rhino CAD software, 3DM files can be opened with Autodesk Fusion 360.
Need to work with CAD files in numerous formats? No worries.
From ACIS to 3DM, CAD Exchanger gets you covered.
A CAD file is an output of a CAD software, containing key information about the designed object: its geometry and topology representation, 3D model hierarchy, metadata, and visual attributes depending on the format of the file.Read more
