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:
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 if you agree & approve.

Regards,
Dave

RoBO Lawn-Mower So, I work at our church on the grounds team and my job is to use a push mower on the VERY steep hills around the main building; I would say there is about 2 acres of this extreme hills that need to be mowed every week. Whew... it's pretty rough sometimes!! Of course my inner-geek always comes out while I'm mowing and I think of how I could make it easier... well, what about having a robot do this for me!!

But what sort of robot could manage these hills and do a GOOD JOB of cutting God's grass... hummm...

I have been doodleing and drawing for about 6 months on this and finally started building last week!!

Here we go...
