Additive manufactured (AM )products are being used in space, aerospace, automotive, oil and gas, and medical applications. Some of these parts are flight critical, thus requiring unique testing methods for part certification and approval. The information in this presentation will highlight metallurgical differences between AM and traditionally produced parts, standards for flaw and metrology-based inspection, digital radiography, Fan Beam computed tomography, Cone Beam computed tomography, contrast, sensitivity, and resolution differences based on part size and material type.
