Glow in the Dark HIPS 3D printer filament is available in 1.75mm and 3mm sizes on 1 Kg (2.2 lbs) spools. 3D Printer Pro offers a selection of glow in the dark HIPS filament colors: red, green, blue, white, and yellow. Create science fiction objects, costumes, bracelets, scary novelty items, and more with glow in the dark HIPS filament. This glowing filament is capable of 3D printing objects on its own or used in conjunction with ABS for supports. Easily dissolve glow in the dark HIPS filament in Limonene, leaving only the ABS object. Our 1.75mm or 3mm glow in the dark 3D printer filament for sale ships same day as purchased.
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 glow in the dark High Impact Polystyrene 3D 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: An “Arduino” is a single-board microcontroller and considered the central nervous system of your 3D printer. The Arduino board is responsible for a variety of tasks including interpreting 3D print instructions, temperature regulation, motor movement, and extrusion rate.
Color Fact: Common materials used to create glow in the dark filament include zinc sulfide and strontium aluminate based pigments.
