Additive manufacturing roadmap released to create industry standards

March 22, 2017

America Makes, the National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Institute, and the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) have released Standardization Roadmap for Additive Manufacturing (Version 1.0) to help coordinate and accelerate the development of industry-wide additive manufacturing standards and specifications. In the roadmap, the authors highlight 89 gaps – 19 of which are high priority – where no published standard or specification currently exists to address a particular industry need.  Topical areas include standards for design, process and materials, qualification and certification, nondestructive evaluation, and maintenance. The organizations goal is for the roadmap to be broadly adopted by the standards community and for it to facilitate a more coherent and coordinated approach to the future development of standards and specifications for additive manufacturing.
