PLY to SAT Conversion

The list below contains valuable resources, complete with step-by-step guides and expert advice for converting PLY files to SAT format using our converters. Delve into them now to simplify your PLY files conversion later.


PLY Polygon File

A file format specifically designed to store three-dimensional triangles along with additional properties such as color, normals, transparency, or texture coordinates. PLY is also known as the Stanford Triangle Format, as it was developed at Stanford University in the early 1990s. PLY has many applications and benefits for 3D graphics, such as:

  • Rich and Customizable Data: PLY is a comprehensive and flexible format for 3D triangles, as it can store not only the geometric information of the triangles, but also the material and appearance information of the vertices and faces. PLY also allows for the definition of custom properties and elements, which can be used to store any additional data that is relevant to the 3D model.
  • PLY File Converter: Autoconverter allows you to convert your 3D models from various file formats, such as STL, SKP, OBJ, DAE, 3DS, STEP, and others, to PLY and vice versa.
  • Binary and ASCII Formats: It’s worth noting that PLY files can be saved in either binary or ASCII text formats. The binary version is generally preferred due to its significant reduction in file size and faster loading speed. However, the ASCII version is more human-readable and easier to edit. Our PLY file converter can handle both formats and convert between them.

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.
