    Opening SAT files

    Gary Lucas

      I was sent an SAT file by a vendor and was surprised that neither Rhino or SW2017 pro wouldn't open it.  Is there a way to do this?

          SolidWorks does open .SAT files.  If it doesn't open when you pick the ACIS file type, then the file is one of three things.

           

          1) Corrupt

          2) Of a version newer than the ACIS kernel that SolidWorks 2017 is using

          3) Is a 2D .sat file. 

           

          Is there an error you are getting when you try and open the file?
