Abstract

Additive Manufacturing (AM) is a process of part creation that builds up layers of material based on a model rather than removing material from stock. There is growing interest in how AM can be applied to different industries. AM has proved itself useful as a rapid prototyping tool, but has yet to fully make the jump into mass production, especially in industries where failure prevention is critical, such as aerospace and orthopedic joint replacement. Consistent part quality and manufacturing repeatability are required to make AM a viable choice for part creation in these fields. Methods must be developed to monitor and correct the layer adding process as it occurs so that parts are strong and consistent. This project aims to present comprehensive research of existing quality assurance and quality control processes used in AM so that we can bring the best possible tools to Western Washington University to aid student learning.
