    Some folks claim they can anneal 3D printed parts. You might need some way to brace your parts to keep the heat from deforming them. Read the comments in the following videos for additional tips...

    Annealing PLA in Place

    What's the temperature resistance of annealed PLA, PETG and ABS?

    What the world calls "Global Warming", we in Arizona call "Summer Time."
    That's interesting. I didn't know such a thing was possible but, for the applications I've been using ABS filament for it's difficult to imaging how it would be useful in my case. Since this "Annealing" process tends to alter the original dimensions it might work for me if I printed everything just a bit bigger all around to its' general shape and then machined it down to the specified dimensions but, my reason for buying the 3D printer was to minimize the use of my milling machine and hopefully use whatever I printed directly out of the printer with a minimum of post-printing work to get it to the finished state.

    It's good to learn about this though since I never know when such an annealing might come in handy on some future project. Thanks.
