Additive Manufacturing Standardization Forum: Accelerating Standards & Specs Development

Tuesday, May 9
2:00 PM – 5:00 PM
(Registration is open)



Hosted by

Join us for this special program to discuss the current state of standards needed to advance the use of additive manufacturing. Explore identified gaps and priorities with particular focus on needs for aerospace, defense, and medical applications. Several prominent standards development organizations involved in the America Makes & ANSI Additive Manufacturing Standards Collaborative (AMSC) will discuss their work programs and present opportunities for you to get involved.

The AMSC Standardization Roadmap for Additive Manufacturing, slated for publication in February 2017, will be presented to launch the discussion. This collaborative project between America Makes, the National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Institute, and the America National Standards Institute (ANSI) reflects many thousands of hours of work done by industry and research volunteers.

The session will include short presentations, Q&A, panel discussions, and networking opportunities. You will have a chance to ask your questions and understand how this effort can make a difference in your work.
