    Curing PA12-CF parts

    What set-ups do people use to anneal PA12-CF parts? Looking to process said parts and read that depending on the part size it needs to oven cure at 80 degC for 8-12 hours. Obviously the wife won't like that and the only winner will be the energy companies! If I lived outside the UK I could leave it outside! The parts in question are for an R&D project which were originally printed in PLA with some parts using PA12-CF for endurance. The usual route would be machined from billet but there is scope to print parts for low volume numbers as alot cheaper, £5 PA12-CF versus machined ally at £121. To justify this I'd need to factor in the hourly energy cost rate.

    what are the specs of the part that would require the CF, will 910 nylon or ABS do in pace of the composite? I have only used CF once and it was very inclined to warp compared to the 910, but it was more ridged
