3DXMAX HIPS Filament


HIPS is an excellent choice for parts which require low-gloss and nearly invisible layer lines. It does not absorb moisture and requires very little set-up to achieve the ideal print in practically any 3D printer. It’s also a very good break-away support for ABS and ASA.

3DXMAX™ HIPS Support Material

Manufactured in the USA from 100% virgin High Impact Polystyrene resin. We use state-of-the-art resins & manufacturing technologies to give you the best possible printing experience. HIPS can be used for parts that require low-gloss and nearly invisible layer lines. It does not absorb moisture, so you do not need to keep it in a dry box.

Plus, it requires very little setup to achieve truly great prints in practically any 3D printer. It can also be used as an excellent break-away support for ABS and ASA or completely dissolved in d-limonene.

Precision extruded using our own formulation, this grade is a bit different than the usual HIPS used to make our model material colors. It’s formulated to be more sensitive to attack from d-limonene solvent and make a better dissolving support solution.
