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.
The SolidWorks Sustainability product line includes SolidWorks Sustainability and SolidWorks SustainabilityXpress. SolidWorks Sustainability provides a complete dashboard of LCA information so you can determine the environmental impact of assemblies. SolidWorks SustainabilityXpress, which comes with SolidWorks 2010, allows you to see detailed LCA information on individual parts.
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:
