Purple HIPS filament in 1.75mm or 3mm is shipped on 1 Kg (2.2 lbs) spools and sealed in plastic to prevent moisture. While 3D printed purple HIPS supports are dissolvable in Limonene, it still works great as a standalone filament with qualities similar to ABS. Parents will love the ability to use HIPS as support material for larger and more complex 3D prints. Younger adults and children can use 1.75mm or 3mm purple HIPS filament for toys, games, novelty items, and more. Our purple 3D printing filament ships same day upon purchase.
Purple 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 purple High Impact Polystyrene 3D printing filament for sale is inspected, tested, and confirmed to work with all FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling) 3D printers.
