Additive Manufacturing Interfaces AMI




During the additive manufacturing process, data is transmitted via a large number of interfaces. These interfaces are used for a variety of purposes, from generating the required print information to connecting to systems such as PLM, ERP, QS systems to providing end-to-end protection by establishing a connection to an external blockchain.

The objective of the Additive Manufacturing Interfaces group is to examine the interfaces used in additive manufacturing processes with regard to interoperability and security aspects and to promote appropriate standardization efforts.

Milestones 2021

The group developed an additive manufacturing reference process that describes the steps involved throughout the process chain. Use cases were defined and described within this reference process. They cover both B2B and B2C scenarios. Other milestones included an examination of safety aspects across the entire value chain and the mapping of multi-material components. The knowledge gained was published in a recommendation.

Outlook 2022

The publication of the recommendation marked the end of the work performed by the Additive Manufacturing Interfaces project group. The participants want to continue working together with other prostep ivip members in the future production-oriented prostep ivip project group “Cloud based Production Collaboration“.
