I've never had such a thing happen, but if it did, I would suspect something is
going on other than the need for a remelt.
As I understand it, remelts are necessary to remove cadmium deposits
(condensation, actually) from the tube. It would be unlikely that there would
be enough cadmium build-up during a single build cycle to produce the type of
power loss as you describe.
But then again, that's just my opinion -- I could be wrong.

what happens to a part if you have to do a re-melt in the middle of a
build, such as of your laser power drops 10-15mws from around 20mw to a
low of 5-10mws?
