The 5% Fe-based amorphous reinforced AlCoCrFeNi high-entropy alloy (HEA) specimens were prepared by selective laser melting (SLM) technique. The mixed of Fe-based amorphous reduces the grain diameter and eliminates the presence of texture. Meanwhile, the anisotropy of the specimen was reduced. The addition of Fe-based amorphous causes the precipitation of FCC phase in the body-centered cubic (BCC) matrix, and the face-centered cubic (FCC) phase is uniformly distributed at the grain boundaries. The presence of FCC phase significantly reduces the internal stress of the specimen. The elements in the amorphous alloy solidly dissolve into the BCC matrix during the printing process, further strengthening the BCC matrix. The residual amorphous and nanocrystalline phases also result in a significant improvement in the performance of the specimen.
