How a Thrill-Seeking Geek Is Set to Triple His B2B Ecommerce after Migrating from YahooMaker Geek 3D Printing Filament by Nick WinklerB2B EcommerceMar 21, 20186 minute read Years before he found himself working on the North Slope of Alaska’s oil fields, Joshua Smith’s dream was to become a high-altitude ice climber and scale the world’s most prolific peaks and valleys. But Mount McKinley, the world’s tallest land-based mountain, would have to wait. Immediately after quitting his job testing oil pipelines in Prudhoe Bay, Smith launched a sports supplements company from scratch. It’s a competitive space, but Smith grew the business into one of Inc. Magazine’sfastest-growing businesses of 2007 and eventually sold it after receiving multiple offers. Smith is a doer; a maker.

How to Anneal Raptor 3D Filament PLA in boiling water

How to Anneal Raptor 3D Filament PLA in boiling water


RECENTLY GOT THIS EMAIL FROM DAVE B. one of our great clients in response to this video with a genius solution to the annealing process! Check it out below!! ;) Hello Joshua and friends,

I've been using your Raptor PLA for most of my projects lately. I like it.
My gas oven does not accurately regulate its temperature at/near 200F.
The annealing process I have been using is to place the finished piece in a covered pot of boiling water for 5-10 minutes. DO YOU APPROVE?

ADVANTAGES:
A Raptor PLA endorsement video currently on your website highlights issues w/ oven temp control and warpage during annealing.
Boiling is well controlled wrt. temperature.
Boiling floats the object in water, consequently no stress warpage due to excess weight loading on any portion of the object while the temp. is elevated.
Hotplates are small and inexpensive (~$10). No need to go the kitchen to use the oven.

CONS:
You have to heat up the water...

Please let me know …
