dc.description.abstract The claimed benefits of globally accepted standards include: promotion of knowledge, improved communication and better transparency in commerce. The voluntary implementation of consensus standards has also been summed up as “levelling the playing field” to the mutual benefit of all. After over a decade of discussing the need for international standards, and in consideration of the limited scope of existing standards, 60 members of the Additive Manufacturing (AM) community organized themselves as ASTM Committee F42 in early 2009 with the aim to develop a cohesive and comprehensive set of AM standards. This presentation will review the Committee’s inception and accomplishments in the first 1.5 years including the new standards developed. It will also offer a view on its acceptance and impact in the AM community, outline where it is headed and explain how to get involved. en
