Blue HIPS filament for sale in 1.75mm or 3mm sizes and stored on 1 Kg (2.2 lbs) spools. This is a great color choice for 3D printing objects or used as a support material for ABS. Since HIPS printer filament dissolves in Limonene, easily use this material to 3D print larger or complex structures. Our 1.75mm and 3mm blue HIPS filament is the perfect choice for modelers, hobbyists, craftsman, and designers. Create toys, cars, structures, or prototypes that is sure to impress the crowd! All blue HIPS 3D printing filament usually ships same day upon purchase.
Blue High Impact Polystyrene (HIPS) is a versatile 3D printer filament to have on hand. HIPS is an impact resistant plastic and can be printed on its own or as a supports for ABS (very useful with dual-head printers). It can be dissolved when immersed with Limonene, making supports easy to remove post-print. HIPS filament is especially useful for creating large structures where supports are crucial. It typically shares the same strength and hardness properties as ABS.
Extrusion Temperature Range: 220 oC – 260 oC
Storage Requirements: Store in an airtight container or bag at room temperature. HIPS will absorb moisture; thereby affecting the dimensional tolerances of your 3D printer filament. Use airtight storage containers, buckets, or zip lock bags to keep the material free from humidity.
Compatibility: Our 1.75mm and 3mm blue High Impact Polystyrene printing filament for sale is inspected, tested, and confirmed to work with all FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling) 3D printers. This includes popular brands such as Printrbot, Ultimaker, Afnia, Up!, Type A Machines, Solidoodle, Flashforge, Airwolf3D, Makergear, RepRap, and Makerbot (Replicator and Replicator 2).
3D Printing Helpful Hint: In addition to blue painter’s tape, consider using glue stick. A very light surface coating of glue stick will keep objects stable on the build surface. Use “school” glue stick intended for arts and crafts projects.
Color Fact: Blue is the most attractive color to mosquitoes.
