Product Description

HIPS is short for High Impact Polystyrene and is very similar to ABS. The primary difference is that HIPS uses colorless liquid hydrocarbon(Limonene) as a solvent. This means that you can use HIPS as a support material which can then easily be dissolved by placing your print in Limonene. This is a fantastic alternative to sanding away regular support material.

Some people choose to print with HIPS by itself but the real magic of this filament is if you have a dual extrusion 3D printer and you use it as a dissolvable support material.
