3DS to SAT Conversion

The list below offers valuable resources, featuring comprehensive guides and expert tips for converting 3DS files to SAT format using our converters. Start exploring now to facilitate your 3DS files conversion later.


3DS 3D Studio File

A widely recognized format used for storing polygonal mesh models. It has gained popularity due to its extensive feature set and compatibility with various software, such as:

  • Extensive Support: The 3DS format supports a variety of features including model names, reusable geometry component instances, materials with transparent colors, and texture images.
  • Compatibility: You can import and export 3DS models to and from many software applications, such as DIALux, which is used for lighting design.
  • Legacy Constraints: Due to its legacy constraints, 3DS model names are limited to 8 characters. Additionally, a single 3DS mesh object can only contain up to 32,767 triangles.
  • 3DS Converters: To overcome legacy limitations and convert any mesh into 3DS format, you can use our Autoconverter and Automesher Application. They will automatically split your models into smaller shells to accommodate the triangles limit, and convert them to the 3DS format.

SAT Standard ACIS Text File

An ASCII file format specifically designed to store 3D model geometry with precision. It was developed and is continuously maintained by the Spatial company. SAT files are widely supported across the majority of 3D modeling and CAD software. They play a crucial role in effectively exchanging 3D data between different systems, such as AutoCAD and Solidworks. Some of the features of SAT files are listed below:

  • Precision: SAT files use a mathematical representation of 3D geometry, which preserves the exact shape and dimensions of the 3D models. This ensures that the 3D models are not distorted or corrupted during the data exchange process.
  • Compatibility: SAT files are compatible with a large number of 3D software tools, which makes them a versatile and flexible file format for 3D data exchange. Users can easily import and export their 3D models using SAT files, without losing any information or quality.
  • SAT File Converter: SAT files can also be used to convert mesh-based geometry into a true solid shape, which can improve the performance and functionality of the 3D models. Autoconverter allows you to convert and save your 3D files in the SAT file format for further editing in your CAD software.
