STL to ACIS SAT converter

STL to ACIS SAT converter

Adam H. Aitkenhead
31st March 2010

Convert an STL file into an ACIS v4.0 SAT file (Standard ACIS Text), which can be more readily imported into various CAD packages (including Solidworks) as a solid model.

>> CONVERT_stl_to_sat(STLfilename)
>> CONVERT_stl_to_sat(STLfilename,STLformat)

converts the stl file into an ACIS SAT file. The optional string defines the format of the STL file as one the following:
'auto' - (The default option) Automatic detection of the file format
'ascii' - ASCII format
'binary' - Binary format

>> CONVERT_stl_to_sat('sample.stl')

converts the STL file 'sample.stl' into an ASIC SAT file called 'sample.sat'.

The STL data must meet the following criteria:

1. All facets are triangular.
2. No duplicate or overlapping facets exist.
3. The mesh is properly closed.
4. The facet normals are properly defined.
5. For each facet edge, there exists an odd number of identical edges on adjacent facets.

Although uncommon, some STL meshes may not meet requirement 5 and cannot be converted to SAT using this code.

System Requirements:

MATLAB 7.0.1 (R14SP1)
Program Release Status: New Release
Program Install Support: Install and Uninstall
