New in SolidWorks 2012: SolidWorks Sustainability Enhancements

The powerful toolset in SolidWorks Sustainability uses established Life Cycle Assessment to measure environmental impacts. New features give you even greater flexibility to develop your product profile and differentiate with sustainable design. Highlights include the ability to

  • Identify alternate materials and define the percentage of recycled content in your product;
  • Get immediate feedback from the environmental dashboard and quickly generate detailed profiles;
  • Define how long product materials will remain versus time of product use for more accurate assessment;
  • Automatically measure environmental impacts during design for carbon footprint, total energy consumed, air, and water.
