A few weeks ago, I posted a video of Stefan at CNC Kitchen experimenting with annealing 3D prints in plaster to increased their strength.
I also posted this video in my weekly tips newsletter, and in response, a reader sent me this video. It shows another annealing process, this time using salt. You grind regular table salt into a fine powder, pack your 100%-infill print with it, and bake it.
Not only does this process allegedly improve print strength, it also makes your prints water- and gas-tight.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
