"HIPS Filament, an extra strong filament suitable for utensils or as support"
HIPS filament (High Impact Polystyrene) is similar to ABS filament, but HIPS is slightly more resistant to impact. HIPS filament is also soluble in Limonene and therefore suitable as a supporting material for a 3D print with overhang.
Pros and Cons:
+ Very strong
+ Resistent to high temperatures.
+ Long life
+ Suitable as a soluble support material
- Need a warm printing bed
- Plastic smell while printing
3D-Printing with HIPS filament
With the correct settings and 3D printer, HIPS filament is reasonably easy to 3D print. We do recommend that you read this page Here we have described all information and required settings for your 3D printer so that you can 3D print successful 3D prints with HIP filament immediately.
Other specific information about this product you can find in the tab "specifications" under the product-image.
Problems while 3D-Printing?
If you encounter problems during 3D printing with ABS filament, then even look under the heading "3D printing help" at the top of this page. Here you will find an explanation with solutions for many problems during 3D printing.
If you have doubts about which filament is most suitable for your application, take a look at the filament comparator. On filament comparison page. On this page you will find a table in which all types of filaments are compared at different points so that you can determine which filament fits your application best.
