To develop a standard guide(s) that will document and address the key learnings consisting of testing modification, interpretation of results, or validity of test methods - found when using mechanical test methods during a test program for additively manufactured specimens.
KeywordsNon-metallic additive manufacturing (AM); polymer additive manufacturing (AM); material extrusion (ME); allowables; mechanical properties; thermoplastic manufacturing; AM characterization; standard deviation
The guide(s) will be used to augment the set of standards used for mechanical performance characterization of polymer AM materials so that process induced nuances can be accounted for prior to starting a qualification or testing program. Users can consist of machine operators, printer OEMs, testing houses, ASTM sub-committee members, technology adopters/type-certification holders, and certification regulators.
The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.Back to Top
