HIPS 3D Printing Filament 2.85mm 1Kg – Soluble Supports

Top quality, high impact polystyrene HIPS plastic filament thats soluble in hydrocarbon Limonene solution.

It is ideal for those who have dual extruder 3d printers & want to print supports in a separate material to the main ABS model.
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 & you can simplify cleaning out supports.
It is cheaper than PVA water dissolve material, & still offers easier support removal.

Description

It prints reliably in several 3d printers including Creatbot, Ultimaker, Lulzbot 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 that working with HIPS & soluble support is an advanced concept not suited to beginners.
Not all HIPS & ABS brands will work together. Fine tuning will be needed.
Warping has to be controlled otherwise the dual head machines won’t help.
We recommend 3d printers with heated chamber control.
