SME's Additive Manufacturing Standards database

Welcome to the Standards, Specifications, and Guidelines database bringing together available information on standards, specifications, and guidelines for use in additive manufacturing/3D printing.

You can:

  • Search by area (design, testing, materials, etc.), by technology (powder bed fusion, binder jetting, etc.), material (metal, polymers, etc.), material form (powder, liquid, etc.), and even by development organization.
  • Suggest needed standards, specifications, or guidelines.
  • Submit updates and corrections
  • Provide feedback and ideas for improvement of the system
  • Add a standard, specification, or guideline

You will find:

  • Standards developed specifically for additive manufacturing
  • Information applicable to additive manufacturing
  • Guidelines developed for related steps in the process (i.e. 3D imaging)
  • Links for more information on each

Before you begin, here are a few tips to help you get the most out of your search:

  • In the text search fields (name, description, abstract), the system will treat more than one word as a phrase.
  • To select more than one item in a list, hold the CTRL key and click on multiple options.
  • Not selecting an option in a field will not use that field as a filter.
