HIPS 3D Printing Plastic Filament

High impact polystyrene HIPS plastic filament is soluble in hydrocarbon Limonene solution.

It is ideal for those who have dual extruder 3d printers.
HIPS can dissolve so it is used to print the support material out of one extruder, & the core parts are made out of ABS from the other extruder head.
Use it with any dual extruder 3d printer & it will ease the ability to dissolve or detach supports from ABS model.
It is cheaper than PVA water dissolve material, & still offers easier support removal than materials like PLA.

It prints reliably in several 3d printers including Creatbot, FlashForge, Prusa, Up, Makerbot Replicator, Creality X, etc

HIPS is impact resistant in low strength structural applications. HIPS is also FDA approved for food processing.
However it is famous in 3d printing for its ability to dissolve.

Please note: HIPS & Limonene dissolving is an advanced technique & not recommended for beginners.
Not all brands of ABS stick to all brands of HIPS. Settings need to be very fine-tuned, & warping greatly minimised with dense support.
Ooze shields & wipe towers are usually needed. We recommend machines with Active chamber control & Independant Extruders.
