Two products can check the environmental impact of models - SOLIDWORKS® SustainabilityXpress and SOLIDWORKS® Sustainability.
When you launch Sustainability, it opens in the Task Pane. Use the Sustainability Task Pane to set parameters and get real-time feedback about the environmental impact of designs.
You can use SustainabilityXpress or Sustainability to evaluate a part. Change the materials and processes used to create the part and see the effect in the Environmental Impact dashboard of the Sustainability Task Pane.
You can use Sustainability to evaluate and improve the environmental impact of assemblies. You can refine an assembly design by adding materials to parts or components. You can perform a general analysis, based on default values, or a more accurate analysis, by adjusting values for each component.
You can access additional materials for Sustainability studies using the Sustainability Extras folder in the SOLIDWORKS Materials dialog box.
You can use Assembly Visualization to focus on the components that most affect an assembly's environmental impact.
