Roadmap for Additive Manufacturing: Identifying the Future of Freeform Processing

Sixty-five experts from academia, industry, and government attended the Roadmap for Additive Manufacturing (RAM) Workshop in March 2009 in Washington, DC. Its purpose: to develop a roadmap for research in additive manufacturing for the next 10-12 years. The effort was led by David Bourell of the University of Texas at Austin, Ming Leu of Missouri University of Science and Technology, and David Rosen of Georgia Institute of Technology. These three individuals and those attending the workshop created the roadmap. Sponsors were the National Science Foundation and the Office of Naval Research.
