Title: Applicability of Existing Materials Testing Standards for Additive Manufacturing Materials
Published: July 07, 2014
Abstract: This NIST Internal Report (NISTIR) is the third in a series of reports from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Engineering Laboratory's project on Additive Manufacturing Materials. This project provides the measurement science for the additive manufacturing (AM) industry to measure material properties of additive manufacturing materials in a standardized way. Currently there are no additive manufacturing-specific consensus-based standards in this area. This project, in conjunction with the NIST Engineering Laboratory's other additive manufacturing projects, will provide the technical foundation and documentary standards development necessary to develop new consensus-based standards for AM materials, AM processes, and AM part qualification. This will be done via ASTM-International's (hereafter referred to as 'ASTM-I') Committee F42 on Additive Manufacturing Technologies and the newly formed International Organization for Standardization (ISO) TC261 committee on Additive Manufacturing.
