Abstract: A single-trace copper wall is deposited by laser metal deposition and oxygen is introduced via removing the vacuum protection equipment. The corresponding microstructures at different positions are characterized by optical microscopy, scanning electron microscopyand transmission electron microscopy. Graded microstructures with the equiaxed grains of copper, macro-precipitates of Cu2O in top position and equiaxed grains, macro-precipitates and nano-precipitates of Cu2O in bottom position are obviously observed. The macro-precipitates are formed in the primary thermal cycle while the nano-precipitates are formed in the latter thermal cycles and contribute to larger hardness. This work reveals the microstructure evolution of Cu2O precipitate and indicate the specific mechanical priority of copper production by additive manufacturing.
