Jennifer Herron has been invited to represent the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) at the Additive Manufacturing Standardization Forum at 2:00 pm on Tuesday, May 9, 2017. This special program will discuss the current state of standards needed to advance the use of additive manufacturing and explore identified gaps and priorities with particular focus on needs for aerospace, defense, and medical applications. This forum will be held as part of RAPID + TCT in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on May 8-11, 2017.
This comes one week after Jennifer Herron participates in the ASME Y14 Standards Committee Meetings during the week of May 1-5, 2017, in Tampa, Florida. Ms. Herron serves as chair of the ASME Y14.46 Subcommittee on Product Definition for Additive Manufacturing. In addition, Ms. Herron serves on the ASME Y14.41.1 Digital Product Definition Data: Model Organization Schema Practices and ASME Y14.37 Composite Part Drawings subcommittees.
“The Y.14.46 subcommittee has been working hard for the last two years. Our focus has been to work together with Y14 Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing experts to identify gaps in the drawing process when applied to 3D printing,” says Ms. Herron. “We’ve used ASME Y14.5 as the foundation for product definition of 3D models when 3D printing manufacturing methods are used. The Draft Standard for Trial Use posits building block notation that will help the Additive Manufacturing industry. This face-to-face meeting will push us closer to releasing the Y14.46 Product Definition for Additive Manufacturing Draft Standard to the public.”

About ASME Y14 Standards Committees
The ASME Y14 Standards Committee meetings are free and open to the public. If standards development sounds appealing to you, the various engineering product definition subcommittees welcome your help. ASME Y14 subcommittees meet regularly via conference call and twice yearly in person.
About the Additive Manufacturing Standardization Forum
This special program will discuss the current state of standards needed to advance the use of additive manufacturing and explore identified gaps and priorities with particular focus on needs for aerospace, defense, and medical applications. Several prominent standards development organizations involved in the America Makes & ANSI Additive Manufacturing Standards Collaborative (AMSC) will discuss their work programs and present opportunities for you to get involved. The AMSC’s Standardization Roadmap for Additive Manufacturing will be presented to launch the discussion. The session will include short presentations, Q&A, panel discussions, and networking opportunities.
