PISCATAWAY, N.J., USA, 02 September 2015 – IEEE, the world's largest
professional organization dedicated to advancing technology for humanity,
announced today that the IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA) has approved
development of IEEE P3030™ Draft Standard for Consumer 3D Printing.

IEEE P3030 is being crafted to define an architectural framework for
consumer 3D printing, including descriptions of various domains,
definitions of domain abstractions and identification of commonalities
between different domains. Because consumer 3D printing involves unique
standards requirements, IEEE P3030 is planned to provide a needed blueprint
for data abstraction, quality, protection and safety. The architectural
framework for consumer 3D printing is intended to be a reference model that
defines relationships among various domains and common architecture
elements, and that addresses all contingencies related to the industry,
regulatory bodies and consumers.

“Consumer 3D printing technology is emerging rapidly and there is a need to
incentivize industry adoption of standards specific to the marketplace, and
to be cognizant of unique challenges where 3D printed items from a wide
range of future equipment will need to produce identical results in order
to achieve broader market acceptance,” said Yu Yuan, chair, IEEE Consumer
3D Printing Working Group. “IEEE P3030 is focused on standards development
to establish quality metrics and accuracy grades so that printed materials
at the consumer level can be assembled faultlessly, while also addressing
issues related to privacy, security and control measures.”

IEEE will host several workshops on consumer 3D printing to collect input
and solicit participation for IEEE P3030. The first workshop will be held
during the 2015 IEEE Global High Tech Congress on Electronics (GHTCE) in
conjunction with the 17th China Hi-Tech Fair on 16-21 November 2015 in
Shenzhen, the largest electronics industry base in China.
