Manufacturing Science focuses on the development and implementation of next-generation advanced manufacturing technologies. Research and development of new processes and technical capabilities enables design of new materials, systems, and products. Manufacturing Science includes many techniques, including additive manufacturing (3D printing).

SciServer currently offers access to additive manufacturing datasets from the AM Bench project of the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). As we make datasets from additional projects available, we will describe them on this page.

AM Bench

AM Bench is a NIST-led organization that provides a continuing series of AM benchmark measurements, challenge problems, and conferences with the primary goal of enabling modelers to test their simulations against rigorous, highly controlled additive manufacturing benchmark measurement data.  All AM Bench data are permanently archived for public use using comprehensive, custom data management systems.

For more information on the AM Bench datasets available through SciServer, see the AM Bench Datasets page.
