Short description
Additive manufacturing processes have their origin in prototyping and are commonly known as rapid prototyping. Currently the properties of additively manufactured parts are good enough to be used as final products. Thus, additive manufacturing processes provide an additional manufacturing option besides conventional methods. They have the potential to reduce production time and costs while increasing functionality. Each manufacturing process has its specific advantages and disadvantages. These are well known with conventional manufacturing processes. Thus, they are taken into consideration adequately during the construction of devices and when choosing the actual manufacturing process. This treasure trove of experience is fairly available with additive manufacturing processes. This standard provides a base to consider additive manufacturing as an option to produce parts for specific purposes. It addresses design and production engineers. Based on the specific characteristics of additive manufacturing processes given in VDI 3405 Part 3, this standard gives detailed and specific constructive recommendations for electron beam melting.
