Using the proposed equipment, we determined the deposition conditions under which the melting of a specimen can be limited to a shallow depth, while making depositions of sufficient height on the specimen. These deposition conditions are a laser power of 2.0 kW, a laser traveling speed of 1.5 m/min, and a wire-feeding speed of 7.7 m/min. Further, we confirmed that slight tuning of these deposition conditions even allows for 10-layer depositions and depositions containing curved lines.
