Learn how to convert SAT to COMSOL Multiphysics with CAD Exchanger
A SAT file is a 3D model used in ACIS CAD modeling software by Spatial Corporation.
The format's name stands for Standard ACIS Text, since the content of a SAT file is stored as ASCII text. In ACIS, the same data can also be saved in binary form with SAB extension.
SAT files are used to communicate 3D data across different 3D CAD tools, such as Spatial 3D ACIS Modeler, Autodesk AutoCAD 2017, IMSI TurboCAD Pro 2016, Dassault Systèmes SOLIDWORKS, etc.
COMSOL Multiphysics® is a general-purpose simulation software for modeling designs, devices, and processes in all fields of engineering, manufacturing, and scientific research. In addition to using multiphysics modeling for your own projects, you can also turn your models into simulation applications and digital twins for use by other design teams, manufacturing departments, test labs, customers, and more.
The platform product can be used on its own or expanded with functionality from any combination of add-on modules for simulating electromagnetics, structural mechanics, acoustics, fluid flow, heat transfer, and chemical engineering. The add-on modules and LiveLink™ products connect seamlessly for a modeling workflow that remains the same regardless of what you are modeling.
Need to work with CAD files in numerous formats? No worries.
From SAT to COMSOL Multiphysics, 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
