Industrial needs and available techniques for geometry assurance for metal AM parts with small scale features and rough surfaces
Paper in proceedings, 2018

From an industrial perspective this paper aims to explore the state of the art regarding GD&T for metal additive manufacturing, specifically regarding product definition and inspection. The available techniques for geometry assurance for parts with small scale features and rough surfaces are evaluated in terms of suitability for the task and readiness for industrial implementation. It is found that many of the remaining challenges seem to be related to processing of data rather than obtaining data. Current difficulties are related to issues such as calibration, surface determination and defining the most relevant parameters to tolerance and inspect.
