Conduct life cycle assessment (LCA) on parts or assemblies directly within the design window. Search for comparable materials and see in real time how they affect environmental impact. Create detailed reports that explain a design’s sustainability.
These are just some of the functional benefits that SOLIDWORKS Sustainability brings to sustainable design. You will have one integrated system that lets you design for the environment while creating great products and still meeting deadlines.
Like all SOLIDWORKS products, SOLIDWORKS Sustainability makes a complex process easy to understand and use. Life cycle assessment becomes another fast, yet critical step in product development, giving you the information you need to make environmentally friendly engineering decisions. Sustainable design is now SOLIDWORKS simple!
Here is a list of key features for both SOLIDWORKS Sustainability and SOLIDWORKS SustainabilityXpress that will help you design for the environment:
Intuitive LCA Tool – Conduct comprehensive LCA analyses of parts and assemblies quickly and easily.
Environmental Impact Dashboard – See in real time your product’s air, carbon, energy, and water impacts.
Baseline Measurement – Capture the environmental impact of an existing product as your baseline, and then monitor in real time how your new design compares.
Find Similar Material – Quickly search the material database for alternative materials based on their mechanical properties.
Customizable Reports – Create impressive reports that document the improvements you have made to the environmental impact of your products.
Integrated SOLIDWORKS User Interface – Work productively with a smart, familiar interface that lets you see environmental impacts and make changes directly in the product model.
