Additive printing

Printed at Penn State’s Center for Innovative Materials Processing through Direct Digital Deposition (CIMP-3D) from glass powder using the ExOne MLab 3-D printer, this National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) test artifact is used to investigate the performance and capabilities of an additive manufacturing system.  The artifact offers dozens of measurable variables for calibration and measurement of process parameters.
