Have you ever tried to microwave a printed part?

I’m very curious what would happen, but don’t want to try this with my home kitchen microwave.  If you have tried it, what did you discover?  What do you think would happen?  Is it a bad idea?  I haven’t tried it in part because I think it sounds like a bad idea…  What would happen with ABS?  With PLA?

  1. mifga and co. tried this out at NYC Resistor one night. The timelapsed footage made it into one episode Robot Hospital. Mostly nothing happened, but the bottom of one part melted out.
