Referencing AM Bench Data

AM Bench data are published both through traditional journals and through online data publications using the NIST Public Data Repository (PDR) at data.nist.gov.  For the 2022 benchmark measurements, all data are being published using both mechanisms.

Journal articles

The AM Bench 2022 measurement data articles will be published in the journal Integrating Materials and Manufacturing Innovation, within the thematic section: AM-Bench 2022.  These articles are expected to become available in late 2023.

Data publications

All active AM Bench 2022 data links on this website point to data publications within the NIST PDR.  Additional PDR datasets will be released as they become publicly available.  Citation instructions for referencing the following AM Bench 2022 data are provided on each DOI landing page.
