The promotion of knowledge, stimulation of research and implementation of technology through the development of standards for additive manufacturing technologies. The work of this Committee will be coordinated with other ASTM technical committees and other national and international organizations having mutual or related interests.
Non-metallic additive manufacturing (AM); polymer additive manufacturing (AM); material extrusion (ME); allowables; mechanical properties; thermoplastic manufacturing; AM characterization; standard deviation; Tension, compression, dogbone.
The amended specification will be used to enhance current standards used for static property characterization of polymer AM materials to account for process specific tendencies. The expected outcome is to drive appropriate failure mechanisms on easier to print specimens. 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
