Gray HIPS 3D printer filament is available in 1.75mm or 3mm size and stored on 1 Kg (2.2 lbs) spools. It’s a multiple use filament capable of 3D printing objects on its own or used in conjunction with ABS for supports. Grey HIPS filament dissolves in Limonene, leaving only the ABS model. 1.75mm and 3mm Grey HIPS 3D printer filament for sale is one of our most versatile colors available for makers, engineers, and hobbyists. Suitable for all objects including toys, prototypes, household goods, and parts. Our grey 3D filament is quality inspected and sealed in airtight packaging to prevent moisture damage.
Grey 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 grey 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 Afinia, Up!, Type A Machines, Solidoodle, Flashforge, Airwolf3D, Makergear, RepRap, and Makerbot (Replicator and Replicator 2).
3D Printing Helpful Hint: Need to test the accuracy of your 3D printer? Consider downloading calibration cubes, spheres, and objects specifically designed to test your 3D printer’s capabilities.
Color Fact: Grey represents intellect, wisdom, and knowledge.
