This is a 1kg roll of High Impact Polystyrene, a great material for both finished prints and as a dissolve-able support material.
HIPS is a type of dense polystyrene that has a flexibility that allows it to be high impact, usable in place of ABS or other high strength materials for projects. Being a Polystyrene material, it is also dissolve-able in the chemical known as d-limonene, a common ingredient in cleaning agents (notable by it's very orangey smell), which allows it to be used as a support material for prints using something like ABS as the main material, which prints with very similar temperatures.
At the Superstore, we've found this filament prints best with a bed temperature of 100 degrees, and a nozzle temperature of 235 degrees if you're printing with fine layers, and 245 degrees if you're printing thicker layered objects faster.
The spools are specifically designed to fit Creator Pro, Creator 3 and Guider series of 3D Printershowever they can be used on other printers that use 1.75mm material and have a heated bed.
These filaments will work well with any printer that takes 1.75mm. They might however require an external spool holder if they do not fit on the spool holder that comes with the printer.
This is a new-upgraded formulation engineered by Flashforge helps to minimize filament problems such as curling and bubbles during printing. The new anti-moisture ingredients included in this formulation permits longer storage time without loss of quality.
More precise and stable
Flashforge's new filaments have passed through high-precision laser diameter measuring test, guaranteeing stability of filament diameter, ensuring that the filament doesn't get stuck or slip during printing.
Durable for storage - better to use
Flashforge's new filament series has a damp-proof and anti-cracking formula applied to the filament in production, lengthening the storage time when not using the material. This lets you use all your filament, no matter how long it's in storage.
New process - higher pureness
Flashforge's new filament series is made up of a new formula, which is mixed and produced in a controlled and dust free workshop, preventing any possibility of dust mixing as common with cheaper brands, letting us say goodbye to needless extruder blocking
