Eco Materials Adviser

Win64, English

Granta Design
The Autodesk Inventor Eco Materials Adviser analyzes the eco-impact of your design.

General Usage Instructions

Once installed, open Eco Materials Adviser from the Environments tab in Autodesk Inventor.

With Eco Materials Adviser you can:

  • Browse and search Granta’s materials database to find the property data that you need.
  • Assign materials to parts in your Inventor model. Key materials properties are applied to the parts for use in Eco Materials Adviser calculations and in other Inventor tools, such as stress analysis.
  • Run impact analyses—estimate key environmental and cost indicators: CO2 footprint, embedded energy, water usage, estimated raw materials cost, RoHS (Restriction on Hazardous Substances), food compliance, and end-of-life behavior.
  • Explore alternatives—set a baseline and see the impact of changes in the materials choice via the interactive eco-impact dashboard. You can understand the environmental impact of decisions and make alternative materials selections that better meet regulatory and environmental objectives, without compromising cost or performance.
  • Generate reports—record your decisions and support communication.

Note: University users of Granta Design’s CES EduPack teaching resources may be able to access more extensive data as part of their license, depending on which CES EduPack Edition they are using.  Please contact your Granta account manager to discuss access.
