3D Printing With HIPS – High Impact Polystyrene
While HIPS is commonly used as a dissolve-able filament that is frequently used as support material it’s also a very capable material in it’s own right. Use HIPS to significantly reduce warping and visibly shorten the time you’re spending on post-processing. The material has a unique mat structure that absorbs light and reduces the visibility of minor flaws. It’s great for printing larger parts, housing or architectural prototypes.
