Title: Metals-Based Additive Manufacturing: Metrology Needs and Standardization Efforts
Published: April 16, 2014
Abstract: In recent years additive manufacturing (AM) has received significant visibility, both in the popular media as well as in scientific journals, and niche successes have contributed to the fervor that makes up an inspiring future vision for additive manufacturing. However, there remain significant technical challenges that first must be overcome if this vision is to be fully realized. This paper summarizes the key metrology-based technical challenges that are preventing metals-based additive manufacturing processes from being more pervasive, and describe current standardization efforts that are underway to address these challenges.
