New Solidworks environmental impact plug-in

Seems like a great step, but I have to wonder if the average user will be able to create accurate reports in it, given all the factors that go into manufacturing that may not be known at the start - the part of the design process they claim needs to most guidance for “Green” products.

I could also see them integrating it with COSMOS in some way down the road to let you find a sweet spot of material strength (excess material) and green-ness (just enough material)
