SolidWorks Sustainability Design Software Helps in Understanding Environmental Impacts

SolidWorks Sustainability helps understand environmental impacts for a project

Those rare ideas for making something that’s newer and better, or using materials that happen to be less expensive or greener, may always appear like great visionary brainstorms, but understanding the impacts of what happens when those ideas come to fruition is an even better tool for the mental arsenal, especially when it comes to environmental outcomes.

This is where SolidWorks Sustainability software fits into the design laboratory. This software provides users with one integrated system that lets them design for the environment, while still creating great products and meeting tight deadlines.

As the company states on its website:

SolidWorks, with headquarters in Waltham, MA and Santa Monica, CA, is all about the remarkably complex business of sustainable and environmentally responsible design.

The company also provides a life cycle assessment (LCA) feature on parts or assemblies. The function shows directly within the design window. In addition, designers can search for comparable materials, while seeing, in real-time, their effect on the environment.

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.

For those who are interested, SolidWorks offers a series of marketing and information videos that I think are worth watching.

This definitely sounds like a toolkit any good green designer or entrepreneur would want to keep stored on their server.
