Key Learning

Key Learning

  • Understand the opportunities and regulatory pressures that are driving companies to improve product environmental performance
  • Describe the importance of considering environmental performance during the early stages of design
  • Access materials, process, and eco data within Autodesk Inventor using Granta's unique materials database
  • Perform a rapid environmental assessment of your product using the Eco Materials Adviser in Autodesk Inventor

Description

Description

Would you like to access and apply high-quality materials property data within Autodesk Inventor software? Would you benefit from tools that make it easy to assess environmental impact, cost, and performance of your product? View this class to learn more about Eco Materials Adviser—a new software tool within Autodesk Inventor 2012 and 2013 that can analyze environmental impact and guide materials selection. We will look at how this tool makes it simple for you to browse, search, and apply data from a comprehensive database of nearly 3,000 engineering materials—metals, composites, plastics, natural materials, and more. Eco Materials Adviser uses this data in environmental analysis, but you can also apply it in other Inventor tools, such as stress analysis. Through a practical demonstration and discussion of key eco design principles, we will discover how Eco Materials Adviser can help to address some critical regulatory, cost, and market drivers for today's product designers and engineers.

Target Audience
