How To Get Involved

AM-Bench is an international organization that strongly encourages broad participation from industry, academia and national labs from around the world.  We are interested in all aspects of additive manufacturing, including build methods, in situ and ex situ measurements, theory, and modeling for metals, polymers, ceramics, and composite materials.  If you want to become involved, there are several ways this can happen.

Simulation Result Submissions: Complete details concerning the 2022 benchmark measurements will become available on the main AM-Bench web page in April 2022.  Modelers interested in simulating any of the various aspects of these benchmarks must submit their results to AM-Bench within three months of this release date.  All measurement results will become available online the day after the submission deadline.  Specific dates and times will be determined as we get closer to completion of AM-Bench 2022.

Benchmark Tests:  AM-Bench is extremely interested in any highly controlled AM machines or measurement methods that could be used for future benchmark tests.  Such builds and/or measurements could be incorporated into the large sets of benchmark measurements that occur every three years or could form independent benchmarks that would run asynchronously from this three-year schedule.  If you have ideas for suitable measurements, or if you would like to collaborate on future benchmark tests, please contact one of the chairs of the current Organizing Committee, Brandon Lane or Lyle Levine.

Scientific Advisory Committee:  This committee includes a broad range of AM experts that AM-Bench can go to for advice and input.  If you would like to join this committee, please contact Lyle Levine.

Organizing Committee: This committee is responsible for organizing the AM-Bench Conference and the corresponding round of benchmark tests.  If you are interested in hosting a future AM-Bench Conference, please contact the chair of the AM-Bench Steering Committee, Lyle Levine.

Conference: AM-Bench holds a conference every three years, one month after the data release.  Abstracts on all aspects of additive manufacturing are welcome.
