America Makes to help with AM choice

America Makes and ASM International along with AM data specialist Senvol have joined forces to create learning tool exercises for additive manufacturing (AM) machine and material selection. 

The exercises can help AM users use the Senvol Database of industrial AM machines by introducing various ways to narrow down the options, such as by analyzing machine and material compatibility, build envelope size, total cost of ownership, and mechanical properties. 

‘The Senvol Database is a tremendous resource for the entire industry, and with the addition of these learning tool exercises, we are furthering our commitment to expand mission critical knowledge and training on additive manufacturing,’ said Leanne Gluck, deputy director of workforce and education at America Makes.
