ASTM WK66029

    New Guide for Mechanical Testing of Polymer Additively Manufactured Materials

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: F42.01 | Committee F42 | Contact Staff Manager



    WK66029

    1. Scope

    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.


    Keywords

    Non-metallic additive manufacturing (AM); polymer additive manufacturing (AM); material extrusion (ME); allowables; mechanical properties; thermoplastic manufacturing; AM characterization; standard deviation

    Rationale

    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.
