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.
SLDASM is a SOLIDWORKS Assembly File. It refers to a SOLIDWORKS 3D assembly, which consists of several SOLIDWORKS part files (SLDPRT). An assembly file itself may contain some children SLDASM files, as well as some SLDPRT part files.
SLDASM are proprietary files with closed specifications. Nevertheless, some APIs (like CAD Exchanger SDK) provide the facility to read and convert them to other formats.
Software applications like Autodesk Fusion 360, Okino PolyTrans, and AMADA SheetWorks can import and render SLDASM files created with SOLIDWORKS.
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
