AM Resources

  • NIST AM Materials Database - The NIST Materials Data Program provides evaluated data on phase equilibria, structure and characterization, and performance properties.  Several materials performance property databases are now available, including the online NIST Ceramics WebBook which provides numeric data for physical and structural characteristics, mechanical and thermal properties, and properties of advanced ceramic materials.
  • NIST AM Test Artifact- The NIST Additive Manufacturing (AM) test artifact available on this page may be used to investigate the performance and capabilities of an AM system.  The test artifact is to be built using the AM system under investigation.  All pertinent process parameters and machine settings used in building the test artifact should be documented.
