Assigning colors to rank and sort components in your assembly designs can help you pinpoint parts that contribute the greatest environmental impacts. SOLIDWORKS Assembly Visualization provides full support for sustainability parameters, enabling you to rank, sort, and color your design on any of the four traditional LCA indicators and related sustainability parameters.
Visualize Assemblies on Environmental Indicators
Manipulate assembly displays to focus on parts that cause the greatest impacts to the environment.
- Visualize your assembly on any of the four environmental indicators (carbon footprint, total energy, air impacts, and water impacts) or on related sustainability parameters, such as material type and manufacturing location.
- Rank the parts in an assembly and quickly see which part contributes the most to the selected sorting criterion.
- Use the Assembly Visualization tool to select all parts above a certain carbon footprint, or select all parts fabricated in ABS plastic, to view and modify their sustainability parameters.
- Use Assembly Visualization tools to capture images for use in your sustainability reports .
