When some AM users optimize laser-based additive manufacturing techniques, they stop their parametric mapping once they find a highly dense condition. This work highlights the possibility of having several 'optimum (dense) conditions', where the parameters can be used to control the grain structure, solidification by-product phases, and chemical segregation, through controlling the laser power. This highlights the utility of the process in controlling the mechanical properties through the control of the grain structure or creating a specific microstructure. This is particularly useful in repair applications to match the substrate grain structure.
