New Practice for Additive Manufacturing -- General Principles -- Standard Practice for Creating Data Sets Used in Metal Additive Manufacturing Standards

1. Scope

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.

Keywords

Additive manufacturing; powder bed fusion; directed energy deposition; sheet lamination

Rationale

There has been widespread disagreement on how to create specification minimum values for metal material standards in F42. The proposed standard Additive Manufacturing General Principles Standard Practice for Creating Data Sets Used in Metal Additive Manufacturing Standards establishes the number of test specimens, the processing conditions and the data analysis necessary to be included in the AM material standards. Due to the significant difference between test methods and processing, this standard only applies to metallic materials.

The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
