Additive Manufacturing Community
SME’s Additive Manufacturing Community focuses on the technologies and processes that help conceive, test, improve and manufacture new products to bring them to market faster and most cost-effectively.
Showcase the innovative technologies represented by our technical groups to promote and accelerate adoption within the global manufacturing community.
Be the ultimate resource for elevating global manufacturing to a new level through the use of the innovative technologies represented by the Additive Manufacturing Community’s tech groups.
Members of SME’s Additive Manufacturing Community will participate by networking and will use various communication methods to develop, deliver and promote educational products, services, training, standardization of materials and member benefits. Ongoing collaboration with industry and academia will enhance the effectiveness of communicating with and educating the manufacturing industry regarding rapid technologies.
The SME AM Community Technical Community advisors serve as the primary resource for guidance to SME and its members on additive manufacturing (AM) technologies, including materials, processes, industrial base, and workforce. The primary responsibility of the SME AM Advisory Committee is to advise SME on initiatives, activities, policy, and strategy related to AM.
The role of the SME AM Community Advisors is to provide timely and expert guidance to SME on AM activities, initiatives, and content to best serve the AM community. The AM Advisors also serve as “faces of the industry” for SME. The advisors represent various stakeholders within the technical community.
