The manufacture of highly complex components from nickel-based superalloys with laser powder bed fusion (L-PBF) technology can reduce the production costs parts with comparable microstructural and mechanical properties when compared to casting. The purpose of this study was to investigate the characteristics of samples produced in commercial Hastelloy X (with w% composition of 21Cr-18Fe-9Mo-0.7W-1.5Co-0.1C-1Si-1Mn-0.5Al-0.15Ti-bal.Ni) with an L-PBF process in terms of build density, accuracy, surface roughness, and interface area between the part and the support structures. Samples were obtained with a high density (99.88%), without cracks and with low surface roughness. From the analysis of the support structures, it emerged that the choice of the parameters between support structures, the lower face of the part (down-skin) and the internal area of the part (in-skin) is fundamental to the correct realization of these structures in order to avoid deformation of the components that is induced by thermal stresses during part building.
