Natural/off-white in colour, this high quality material is as strong and stiff as ABS, but is much easier to print with as it is less likely to shrink or warp. HIPS is a dissolvable filament that is frequently used as support material because it is so easily removable, however the material is also unique as you can sand, glue, prime or paint your prints. This extends the possibility of what you can produce on the Robox – beautiful, functional, bespoke prints decorated any way you want.
When a dual material print is created using HIPS as a support material and a second material for the the desired finished part, Limonene can be used as a solvent which will soften and eventually disolve the HIPS. Care should be taken when using Limonene, always read and understand all warnings.
Each reel is sealed in a reusable zip lock bag with a sachet of silica gel to control moisture. The bag is then placed in a sturdy windowed box for shipping.
Included on the reel is an eeprom which can be read by a Robox® device. The eeprom stores data on the material and statistics of use.
