Gold HIPS filament for sale in 1.75mm or 3mm is shipped on 1 Kg (2.2 lbs) spools and sealed in plastic to prevent moisture. If you want to 3D print gold HIPS items such as jewelry, watches, costume props, and other wearable items, this gold 3D printer filament is a great choice. Since gold HIPS works as a modeling filament and as a dissolvable support structure, it’s the perfect tool for the hobbyist’s box. Simply dissolve your final print in Limonene – the material disappears while the ABS model remains!
Gold 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 gold 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 Ultimaker, Afnia, Up!, Type A Machines, Solidoodle, Flashforge, Airwolf3D, Makergear, RepRap, and Makerbot (Replicator and Replicator 2).
3D Printing Helpful Hint: TinkerCAD.com is a great site for the 3D modeling newbie. It’s simple approach to building models is perfect for the beginner. Design something in TinkerCAD, then 3D print it!
Color Fact: While other metals may turn a yellowish color upon chemical reaction, gold is the only metal that is naturally yellow or “golden”.
