Environmental Impact Dashboard with Key Indicators

  • Easy to read graphic display of a design's carbon footprint, energy consumption, water and air pollutants.

GaBi LCA Environmental Database from PE International

  • Perform environmental assessments using the gold-standard GaBi LCA database from PE international.

Seamlessly integrated with SOLIDWORKS interface

  • Seamless integration within the SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD application interface lets you continually assess the environmental impact of your design during development.

Environmental Impact Estimates of Parts

  • Determine the environmental effects of components based on material manufacturing process and the locations where parts are made and used.

Find Similar Material Selection Tool

  • Powerful "Find Similar" tool enables you to search for similar materials based on engineering properties and immediately compare their effects on the environment.

Customisable Reports

  • Clearly summarise and communicate your design choices and their related sustainability ratings.

Establish Baseline to Compare Design Decisions

  • Easily establish a environmental profile to compare design variations.

Baseline Comparison Report

  • Summarise and communicate the different environmental profiles between two design variations.

GaBi Database Updates for New Materials and Processes

  • Download updates to the GaBi LCA database on the fly for new material and process environmental datasets as they become available.

Request New Materials and Processes

  • Submit requests for new environmental datasets on your own materials and processes, a premium service offered in partnership with PE International.

View Manufacturing Process Inputs

  • View default assumptions for electricity, heat energy, and scrap rates of each manufacturing process for greater transparency in environmental assessment.

View Transportation Mode and Distance Inputs

  • View default assumptions for transportation modes and distances.

View Recycled Content Values

  • View the default percentage of recycled content in the typical trade mix for applicable materials.

View End-of-Life Inputs

  • See the default percentage of your product that is typically recycled, incinerated, or sent to landfill for the given Use Region.

Compare Raw Material Financial Impact

  • Select materials based on a balance of environmental impacts and financial impacts (raw material costs), based on regularly updated material commodity prices.

Priority Support for Material and Process Requests

  • Sustainability customers have first priority for submitted material and process requests.
 

Editable Manufacturing Process Inputs

  • Edit the default assumptions for electricity, heat energy, and scrap rates of each manufacturing process for custom manufacturing operations.
 

Editable Transportation Mode and Distance Inputs

  • Edit the default transportation distances across multiple transportation modes for custom product distribution scenarios.
 

Editable Recycled Content Values

  • Edit the default percentage of recycled content for applicable materials.
 

Editable End-of-Life Inputs
