The additive manufacturing processes provide an additional manufacturing option besides conventional methods as per DIN 8580. They have the potential to reduce production time and costs while increasing functionality. Each manufacturing process has its specific advantages and disadvantages. These are well-known with conventional manufacturing processes. Thus, they are taken into consideration adequately during the construction of devices and when choosing the actual manufacturing process. This treasure trove of experience is fairly available with additive manufacturing processes. The standard provides a base to design and production engineers to consider material extrusion based additive manufacturing processes like fused layer modelling (FLM) as an option to produce parts for specific purposes. The standard gives an assistance to tap into the full potential of the high-level freedom of design provided by additive manufacturing processes.
