Additive manufacturing (AM), noun process


of joining materials to make objects from 3D
model data, usually layer upon layer, as
opposed to subtractive manufacturing
methodologies.

Synonyms: additive fabrication, additive processes, additive


techniques, additive layer manufacturing, layer
manufacturing and freeform fabrication.

Rapid prototyping, noun additive


manufacturing of a design, often iterative, for
form, fit or functional testing or combination
thereof.

As an Enabling Technology AM is
used in a broad spectrum of
manufacturing.
Some applications of this
technology include:

Medical Diagnostics

Medical imaging

Dentistry

Paleontology

GIS Survey

T.E.A.M. is a collaboration of two NSF funded


Advanced Technological Education Centers
and a
Professional Organization

The National Resource Center for Materials


Technology Education;
National Center for Rapid Technologies; and
ASTM

Develop Additive Manufacturing (AM) core competencies


and curriculum, based on emerging Global AM Standards.

Goal 1:

10

To facilitate creation of Additive


Manufacturing core competencies and to
develop uniform instructional elements
and focused educational and training
outcomes, T.E.A.M. will lend its knowledge
and expertise to support F42 and its
stakeholders in the development of
Global Additive Manufacturing Standards.

Goal 2:

11

To improve technician education training


programs and to increase student career
eligibility (employability/progression),
T.E.A.M. will provide tools, expertise and
a documented process model that
integrates core competencies and
relevant derivatives into manufacturing
technician programs, aligned with the
emergence of standards in real time.

How will this information be shared?

12

Dissemination of the core competencies and


curriculum through professional development
opportunities, websites, conferences,
professional organizations and appropriate
publications.
ASTM F42 Technical Committee over 120
members globally.

American Society for Testing and


Materials International (ASTM)

13

Is one of the largest voluntary standards


developing organizations in the world.
ASTMs strength is in developing and
publishing standards based on a proven
process.

14

Facilitate the development of fullconsensus Global Standards for Additive


Manufacturing Technologies through F42.
Assist with publishing and disseminating a
complete set of Additive Manufacturing
Standards.
Connect stakeholders input and review
of competencies for validation.

Example: AM Certificate of Completion
3 quarters; 9 credits
Edmonds Community College

Certificate of Completion
in
Additive Manufacturing
MST 161
Introduction to Additive Manufacturing
3 Credits
Provides the student with knowledge and skills in Additive Manufacturing technology. Primary topics include additive
manufacturing fundamentals, terminology, main categories of, and Rapid Prototyping machine technology types,
advantages vs. disadvantages of varied Additive Manufacturing technologies, basic skills in 3-D software, and
practical application of 3-D printing.

MST 162
Additive Manufacturing, Molding and Casting
3 Credits

Provides the student with knowledge and skills in Additive Manufacturing technology. Primary topics include vacuum
forming fundamentals, silicon molding, urethane, investment casting, CNC operations and post processing of lab
created projects.

MST 163
Additive Manufacturing, Metal Printing
3 Credits

Provides the student with knowledge and skills in Additive Manufacturing technology. The primary focus is using the
advanced capabilities of 3D modeling software, the operation and theory of metal printing equipment, and the use
of scanning equipment in the Additive Manufacturing industry.

Prerequisites: Satisfactory completion of Engr. 114 (Introduction to Solid Works),or industry experience in CAD/CAM, or
1yr experience in the Additive Manufacturing industry, or instructor's permission.

Total of 3 quarters/9 credits
