HIPS: High Impact Polystyrene Dissolvable Filament
Designed for use with 3D Printers, High Impact Polystyrene (HIPS) Filament is an extremely versatile high strength plastic material that is commonly used by designers and engineers to create disposable support structures for products.
Our Grade A quality HIPS offers similar 3D printing properties as ABS filament, and it can be used to create both standalone objects or as a support for ABS printed parts. The main difference between ABS and HIPS, is that HIPS is completely dissolvable in Limonene, and therefore ideal for creating temporary supports for structures that would otherwise be impossible to make.
In addition to being highly versatile, High Impact Polystyrene Dissolvable Filament is extremely strong, impact resistant, and very economical. Ideal for beginners, HIPS is simple to use, easy to paint and glue, and it offers excellent three-dimensional stability. Commonly used for creating pre-production prototypes and lightweight parts, it exudes precisely for consistent layering, making more intricate 3D projects much easier to complete.
Compatible with all leading 3D Printers such as Printrbot, Lulzbot, Makergear, RepRap, Makerbot and Wanhao, 3DP Filament HIPS is available in 1.75mm and 3.00mm options, and it comes in 29 attractive colours and a choice of lengths.
