HIPS Filament

HIPS is a dissolvable filament that is often used as support material. HIPS is similar to ABS filament, however, the major difference is that HIPS uses limonene as a solvent. This means that you can use HIPS as a support material which can then easily be dissolved by placing your print in limonene. HIPS doesn’t require scraping, cutting, or any other method of removal that may cause damage to your prints. This is a fantastic alternative to sanding away regular support material which can make your hands sore and leave you feeling frustrated. 

Some people choose to print with HIPS by itself but the real magic of this filament is if you have a dual extruder and you use it as a dissolvable support material. HIPS is as easy to print with as less likely to warp compared to ABS. HIPS is ideal for printing in conjunction with ABS because it has a similar strength and stiffness profile which means they complement each other well. It also helps that HIPS and ABS need to be printed around the same temperature. HIPS prints best with the bed at 55°C and the extrusion temp around 225°C.
