Additive Manufacturing Roadmap

Wohlers Talk

The National Center for Manufacturing Sciences led the development of a roadmap for the additive manufacturing (AM) industry in 1998. and it led to a report titled The Road to Manufacturing. One cause is the recent launch of the ASTM International Committee F42 on Additive Manufacturing, an effort concentrating on the development of industry standards. Its purpose: to develop a roadmap for research in additive manufacturing for the next 10-12 years.
