Red HIPS 3D printer filament for sale in 1.75mm and 3mm is stored on 1 Kg (2.2 lbs) spools. Red HIPS is the perfect color for 3D printed romance, race cars, and toys. It’s a fantastic dual-use material for different projects. Red HIPS 3D printer filament is able to print on its own (with strength properties similar to ABS) or as a support material. Since it easily dissolves in Limonene, it’s a great choice for 3D printing supports on large scale objects. Our 1.75mm and 3mm red HIPS 3D printing filament ships same day upon purchase.
Red 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 red 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: On desktop Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) 3D printers, consider lubricating your Z axis with grease every 50 hours of printing.
Color Fact: The color red is capable of increasing muscle reaction and raising blood pressure.
