HIPS (limonene soluble) Filament - 1.75mm - 1 kg spool
HIPS (High Impact Polystrene) Filament is designed to dissolvable easily in a limonene bath in just 8-24 hours (depending on size and geometry of print). Limonene is a common, colorless, citrus-scented solvent available online and in grocery/home stores. (available from us - search Dissolve Away)
Our HIPS filament can be extruded at 200-260 degrees C making it easy to print using normal ABS settings on the UP and Makerbot printers.
HIPS is compatiple with ABS for dual extrusion (ie HIPS and ABS bond during printing) allowing for HIPS support and RAFT printing on ABS models, for easy dissolving away after printing.
Please note, HIPS requires a heated build plate and PLA will not stick to it. For dual extruding with PLA see PVA support material
