America Makes and the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) today announced the release of an online, interactive portal to track activity by the standardization community to address the gaps identified in the Standardization Roadmap for Additive Manufacturing (Version 2.0) published in June 2018 by the America Makes & ANSI Additive Manufacturing Standardization Collaborative (AMSC). The portal, accessible to all interested stakeholders, will be regularly updated based on input from AMSC members, particularly standards developing organizations. The sections of the portal correspond to the roadmap sections: design; precursor materials; process control; post-processing; finished material properties; qualification and certification; nondestructive evaluation; and maintenance and repair.
“The new online portal will help to make the AMSC roadmap a ‘living document’ that keeps additive manufacturing stakeholders informed on the latest standards development activities,” said America Makes Executive Director John Wilczynski.
“ANSI is always looking for ways to deliver added value to the community, and the AMSC portal provides users an easy way to check on the status of work to develop additive manufacturing standards,” said ANSI President & CEO S. Joe Bhatia.
