    I put the front mount into the boiling water for 30 min as indicated but the part has shrunk and is now too small.
    It is true that the part look “stronger” but does not fit anymore.

    What am I doing wrong ?
    Thanks for your help.


    Yes i can confirm that.
    My solution was that: Print it first in original size and do annealing. Then measure the distance between part one and two (the holes for the screws)
    In my case the difference was 4,91mm.

    Then load the part into Simplify3d and scale it to 104,91%.
    Print again, annealing and now it matches 100%
