The Additive Manufacturing Standards Collaborative (AMSC) is holding a forum in September in order to identify needed standards for the 3D printing industry, and is looking for industry professionals interested in attending either in-person at Penn State University or online. AMSC was founded in March 2016 and describes itself as “a cross-sector coordinating body whose objective is to accelerate the development of industry-wide additive manufacturing standards and specifications consistent with stakeholder needs and thereby facilitate the growth of the additive manufacturing industry.”

In February, they started building a standardization roadmap identifying existing standards and suggesting additional areas in need of standardization.

The forum will include presentations and breakout groups on creating a second stage of the roadmap and how the AMSC can work with industry, government, military, and other groups. Participants are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the first gaps document by viewing a prep webinar recorded on Aug. 17 and available online. The Phase 2 Kick-Off meeting will take place from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sept. 7 at Penn State at The Philadelphia Navy Yard, Penn State Building 661, Symposium Room, 4960 South 12th St, Philadelphia, PA.

Registration for both in-person and remote participation is $30. More information can be found here.
