HIPS-X advantages and features
3D printing is becoming more and more popular, and the choice of materials is growing steadily. Nowadays, you can print 3D objects using many different filaments, like, for example, HIPS-X.
HIPS-X is one of the most popular polymers worldwide. Thanks to its physical properties, HIPS is often used in the food industry or as a material for creating packages. High Impact Polystyrene (HIPS Filament) is a perfect type of support material for ABS parts because it's very comparable to ABS in terms of properties, yet it reacts to other solvents. HIPS can be dissolved with limonene and ABS with acetone. As a result, printing in a combination of HIPS and ABS offers many possibilities because the limonene has no influence on the ABS.
What is more, HIPS can be easily removed from ABS, leaving a clean contact surface. When using HIPS, you don't need to sand, cut, or use any other method to damage your print. Dissolving HIPS in limonene is a great alternative for sanding your print. No more frustrating work! Some people choose to print with HIPS only, but the real value of this filament is when the user has a dual extruder. In such a combination, HIPS can be used as support material.
With HIPS, it's possible to create all possible designs with strange, tricky shapes that are generally impossible to develop without support material that can solve. HIPS is ideal in combination with ABS because it has comparable hardness and stiffness, complementing each other well. It's also useful that both materials can be printed at the same temperature. In practice, you can set the bed to 55 ° C and extrude at a temperature of approximately 225 ° C.
HIPS-X - Different colors of filaments available
Although HIPS-X is a great supporting material, it can be used solely. That's why, at our store, you will find a large selection of different HIPS-X colors (black, natural, red, white, yellow) from Devil Design or Spectrum manufacturers. The unique mechanical properties of this material provide various application possibilities. The 3D printer is the perfect gift for a creative hobbyist or designer.
