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.
