HIPS 3D Filament

HIPS 3D Filament

HIPS 3D Printer filament (High Impact Polystyrene) is a well known soluble/dissolvable (in D-Limonene) thermoplastic support material (used as a support/infill material or on its own). It's often used in conjunction with ABS as they have alike temperature ranges. HIPS filament has less potential for warping while printing, it can be sanded easily, making it a good base material for post-process, painting, etc.


HIPS filament is easier to print than most people think, as long as you 3D Printer can print in the 230 ºC+ range, and you need some sort of enclosure around the 3D Printer to keep the drafts away and to keep the heat inside. People have made 3D Printer enclosures out of thick plastic bag and/or cardboards, so no need to invest in the big thing at the beginning if you want to try 3D Printing with HIPS filament!

 

Another important part of succesfully printing HIPS filament is the heatbed, especially with big part, so you may need to set your 3D Printer's heatbed in the 80-115 ºC range to fight this and use brim ultimately. On the downfall, some people find that HIPS filament smells more than other filament when printing, some aren't bothered at all, but it's especially true with cheaper brands of 3D Printer filament.

  

**Always put your 3D Printer filament spool back in its bag and away from direct sunlight to maximise shelf life.
