America Makes and the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) have launched phase 2 of the America Makes & ANSI Additive Manufacturing Standardization Collaborative (AMSC).

The AMSC is planning to issue by June 2018 an update to its Standardization Roadmap for Additive Manufacturing, which describes published and in-development standards and specifications for additive manufacturing (AM) and makes recommendations to address perceived gaps in standardization. Subjects will cover design, precursor materials, process control, post-processing, finished material properties, qualification and certification, nondestructive evaluation, and maintenance.

Further details are available on the AMSC website.
