America Makes and the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) today presented their Standardization Roadmap for Additive Manufacturing (Version 2.0) in Frankfurt, Germany, at the Formnext Conference, one of the industry’s premier events. Developed by the America Makes & ANSI Additive Manufacturing Standardization Collaborative (AMSC) – with contributions from some 320 individuals from 175 public- and private-sector organizations – the roadmap is an effort to coordinate and accelerate the development of industry-wide additive manufacturing (AM) standards and specifications.
Of the opportunity to participate in Formnext, America Makes Executive Director Rob Gorham said, “America Makes is about promoting U.S. manufacturing competitiveness wherever you are in the world. We are pleased to be part of this international exchange with colleagues in the industry and present our work with ANSI and America Makes members to develop our Standardization Roadmap for AM to the internationally AM community.”
The Additive Manufacturing/3D Printing Standards Forum at Formnext was organized by the U.S. Commercial Service in Dusseldorf, Germany.
