A growing number of ASTM International’s Technical Committees are involved in additive manufacturing. For a summary overview of ASTM International’s footprint in AM, visit ASTM.org
We need to be sure that whatever is going to be produced is going to be consistent, safe, and of high quality. We need to be able to formalize the rules and the ways that we make things with additive manufacturing and that’s why standards are so critical.
— RALPH RESNICK, FOUNDING DIRECTOR OF AMERICA MAKES, AND PRESIDENT AND CEO, NATIONAL CENTER FOR DEFENSE MANUFACTURING AND MACHINING
