You can use all of the laser power that your laser is capable of
delivering to the powder bed. It varies machine to machine and laser to
laser. If you have a 50 watt laser that can be between 38-45 watts or
so. To find the highest laser power at 100% power setting you can check
the dtm/config/machine/ file to see what that would be for
your particular machine.

What is the highest temperature settings anyone has gone to using an
SLS 2500? Is there a limit and what is the highest laser settings
anyone has used? I have only gone up as far as 30Watts but I am sure
the laser can go a bit higher.
