NIST researchers hope to remove barriers to 3D printing metal with new machine

A custom built 3D printer may enable wider use of metal additive manufacturing according to researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The Additive Manufacturing Metrology Testbed (AMMT) 3D printer was made by members of NIST’s Engineering Laboratory (EL) and Physical Measurement Laboratory (PML) and will be used to study 3D printing with metal. In an earlier interview with 3D Printing Industry NIST’s Shawn Moylan explained one of the institute’s long-term goals as, “ qualify as you go .” A 3D printed metal part from the NIST test bed. It’s not just the part To achieve […]
