BS EN ISO/ASTM 52921:2016 - Standard terminology for additive manufacturing. Coordinate systems and test methodologies

BS EN ISO/ASTM 52921:2016

Standard terminology for additive manufacturing. Coordinate systems and test methodologies

Status : Current, Work in hand   Published : July 2013



1.1 This terminology includes terms, definitions of terms, descriptions of terms, nomenclature, and acronyms associated with coordinate systems and testing methodologies for additive manufacturing ( AM) technologies in an effort to standardize terminology used by AM users, producers, researchers, educators, press/media, and others, particularly when reporting results from testing of parts made on AM systems. Terms included cover definitions for machines/systems and their coordinate systems plus the location and orientation of parts. It is intended, where possible, to be compliant with ISO 841 and to clarify the specific adaptation of those principles to additive manufacturing.
