I am also very new to Umberto and was wondering if it is possible to Import EcoSpold Data to Umberto. The last post I have seen on this topic is from 2015. Surely there is a way to use free Datasets, not only by formatting it to an Excel sheet. Otherwise I would be almost completely bound to data I have to buy and this shouldn't be the state of the art. Don’t you agree?

Dear hearthot2543,
You can import linear specifications with a right click on a process, but you need to use the correct template. You can get this if you export the input/output data (linear specification) from a successfully calculated model.

An alternative way is to specify a carbon footprint or other LCIA impact factor for a custom material. Our manual in chapter 6.5 will help you how to set this up.

I´m very new in Umberto and I´m working on the trial version of NXT LCA (sorry to have put the post in the wrong board!) at the moment. So please excuse my potentially simple question:
How do I import datasets (simple linear input/output process specifications) from free database like ProBas? Which toolbar do I have to use? Supposed I don't have the econinvent database yet.
Thank you
Version v3.6 of the ecoinvent LCI database has been published on Dec 4, 2019 and is now available in Umberto LCA+.

General / Input Monitor is available?
« Last post by jtpsportnews on November 29, 2019, 13:33 »
Hello, Everybody

In Umberto 5.6 there was an Input Monitor available, so you could set the input flow for different scenarios simulaneously. Is there a similar function given in Umberto NXT LCA or should the input flow set manually for each scenario now? UFABET1688

Any suggestion would be greatly appreciate. Thank in advance

Dear jtpsportnews,

Thank you very much for your question.
Unfortunately, Umberto NXT and Umberto+ do not allow dynamic calculations like Umberto 5.

However, you can use the User Defined Functions to calculate unknown variables using a formula (e.g. X00 = Y00-X01).

I hope I could help you.
