You want to print something a little more complicated, perhaps a flat surface overhang? You’re going to need a support filament. Our HIPS can be used as a support filament (commonly for ABS based prints, but can be used for PLA too) or it can be used in its own right as a versatile print material. HIPS stands for High Impact Polystyrene, and is a strong and durable material to print with. 

So why is HIPS used more as a support for ABS?

Because they use similar printing temperatures. Whereas our PLA is a purer quality than most so is printed at much lower temperatures so can be tricky to use with HIPS. If you are looking for something to use with PLA we would suggest PVA which prints at similar temperatures.

You can rely on rigid.ink to help you print smoothly and consistently. We take our print tolerances very seriously, boasting an industry leading +/-0.03mm. This means no jams, or under extruding from larger or thinner thicknesses.
Due to our pure formulations (we have a strict no contaminants rule) your prints will come out with no stringing, or blobbing and excellent detail. You’ll notice a layer adhesion that is unmatched, producing not just detailed and smooth prints, but uniformly strong parts. Sure this might not matter as much with a support material (you may be thinking?) but the last thing you want is a clogged nozzle stopping your print.

As with all rigid.ink your filament comes with a 60-day moneyback guarantee, so if it doesn’t do as promise, or you change your mind, you’re free to return it. What’s more if you don’t feel like committing to a full 1KG roll just yet, that’s fine – just order a 10m sample.

So what are you waiting for?

Order your HIPS spool or sample of rigid.ink today and experience the limitless possibilities soluble supports offer you.
