PLA annealing in a boiling water

Title: PLA annealing in a boiling water. Watch on youtube:

Tags: 3dprint,

Annealing of PLA can improve temperature resistancy. I already tested the annealing covered on heated bed (lazy annealing). In this video I am testing annealing in hot water (100 and 80°C). Let's see if equal heating helps with warping.

Results you can download below this text.

In this test I used Amazon Basic PLA and everything was printed on Ender-3 S1 (not Pro like in previous video).
