Seems promising. I'd like a filament that more evenly shrank/expanded along the XYZ axes, but I'm also not in posession of an oven that'll sinter 316 stainless (1200°C) either.
Uneven shrink on xyz. Common phenomena when sintering is reducing particle space. Rockwell ends up a bit low compared to flat rolled. Still, awesome for many things, particularly with a little finish work.

Brick ceramic kilns are being given away, literally, if you look on craigs. The new hot kid is ceramic fiber board kilns and people are ditching their brick kilns. Like for my glass work, I can do 3 "cooks" a day using a fiber setup but just barely 2 in the brick setup. And fiber board only weighs 1/24-1/40 of brick, depending. Although you are fucked on annealing if the power goes out on fiber, no mass to save your ass.:(

*Old dental kilns are also often given away and go hot enough. But usually only an 8" square chamber or so.
