This paper reviews the state-of-the-art research related to the dimensional accuracy in additive manufacturing (AM) processes. It is considered that the improvement of dimensional accuracy is one of the major scientific challenges to enhance the qualities of the products by AM. This paper analyzed the studies for commonly used AM techniques with respect to dimensional accuracy. These studies are classified by process characteristics, and relevant accuracy issues are examined. The accuracies of commercial AM machines are also listed. This paper also discusses suggestions for accuracy improvement. With the increase of the dimensional accuracy, not only the application of AM processes will diversify but also their value will increase.
