Abstract

As AM is viewed more and more as a production-capable technology, the costs of complexity have become increasingly apparent in the form of information requirements. With design flexibilities come the need to capture and communicate complex shapes. In addition, due to the intricacies of the processes, the communication of design intent must often include process, or even material, specifics. These unique AM traits must be addressed to facilitate the reproducibility of AM parts. In this paper, we will discuss the future of GD&T and semantic annotations as they relate to satisfying AM product definition requirements
