Description (excerpt):

The purpose of this report is to equip wind industry professionals with the relevant material testing and properties of large format extrusion-based additive manufacturing processes. Discussion on the printability and processing of different classes of materials (i.e. low temperature, high temperature, thermoplastics, elastomeric, foam, etc.) is provided as well as relevant test standards and methods. Existing results for materials and properties are detailed. A companion document titled “Additive Manufacturing Design Guidelines for Wind Industry” covers the seven families of additive manufacturing, the relevance of each family to the wind industry, and design guidelines and considerations for the most relevant processes.

All statements and/or propositions in discussion prompts are meant exclusively to stimulate discussion and do not represent the views of, its Partners, Topic Directors or Experts, nor of any individual or organization. Comments by and opinions of Expert participants are their own.
