HIPS filament 3D-Printer settings

On this page, will find a clear instruction set on how to properly 3D-Print HIPS filament with the right settings. If you have more questions, feel free to take a look at our page ‘’3D-Print support’’ 


    • Temperatuur

      Temperature

      To properly 3D-Print with HIPS filament, a nozzle temperature between 230 – 250 oC is required. To start, choosing a temperature of 240 oC would be recommended. When the nozzle temperature is too low, the HIPS filament wont liquefy properly and will cause under extrusion. Read: How to prevent under-extrusion during 3D-printing.

    • Snelheid

      Speed

      HIPS filament can be 3D-Printed at quite a high speed. Speeds above 70 mm/s are possible but will require an increase in nozzle temperature to keep HIPS hot enough to remain liquid. Printing at relatively low speeds (<40 mm/s) will give the best results, especially if your print has a lot of details.

    • Koeling-icon

      Cooling

      A 3D-Print made with HIPS filament is highly susceptible to warping. And therefore it is recommended to keep the cooling fan at a low speed or even turned off to prevent ugly deformities and warping during 3D-Printing. Still experiencing warping? Take a look how to prevent warping.

    • Verwarming

      Heating

      3D-Printing with HIPS filament requires a heated bed to prevent warping. The temperature of the heated bed needs to be at 90 oC minimum. The recommended temperature for the heated bed lies between 90 – 110 oC. Still experiencing warping? Take a look how to prevent warping.

    • Adhesie

      Adhesion

      To prevent HIPS 3D-Prints from warping, a good adhesion with the heated bed is essential. This can be easily accomplished with Kapton tape or spray. The Kapton material will act as an adhesive to make sure the 3D-Print cannot warp and break loose from the heated bed during 3D-Printing. Kapton Spray available.

      Finishing

      HIPS can be dissolved in Limonene.  It however does not work that well as a polishing agent. ABS can be treated a lot better with acetone to create that smooth glossy finish. Nevertheless HIPS can be used as a support material which then can be treated with limonene to dissolve the support structure.
