SolidWorks Sustainability capability quickly and easily
integrates environmental assessment into your established
design process. You get continuous, real-time read-out
of the impacts of your designs, so you can develop more
sustainable products. Quickly compare design alternatives and
find the most environmentally-preferred material that meets
your design requirements. You can ensure product quality
and performance while you are environmentally conscious.
SolidWorks Sustainability software provides an assessment of the environmental impact of your complete design, seamless integration with your design process, and the power to create more sustainable products.
SolidWorks Sustainability Xpress
SolidWorks SustainabilityXpress technology performs lifecycle-based sustainable design assessment directly on individual part designs to help you understand the impact of your design decisions. The software is included with each of the SolidWorks 3D CAD design packages—SolidWorks Premium, Professional, and Standard.
An initial analysis of your part design provides a baseline for direct comparison with any subsequent changes. You can find suitable alternative materials or search the included database for others that match your mechanical and environmental criteria. Understand the overall impact of your part design through specific assessment measured in terms of major environmental considerations - carbon footprint, lifecycle energy, and air and water impacts. SolidWorks SustainabilityXpress software integrates the tools you need for more sustainable part design directly into the SolidWorks design interface, and generates reports on your findings, so you can quickly assess, build, and communicate your greener designs.
