  author={Ahmad Mozaffari and Shoja'eddin Chenouri and Ehsan Toyserkani and Usman Ali},
Additive manufacturing (AM), also known as 3D printing, is one of the most promising digital manufacturing technologies, thanks to its potential to produce highly complex geometries rapidly. AM has been promoted from a prototyping methodology to a serial production platform for which precise process monitoring and control strategies to guarantee the accuracy of products are required. This need has motivated practitioners to focus on designing process monitoring tools to improve the accuracy of…
