HIPS (High Impact PoliStyrene) - is a high impact material. This material is easy to print as PLA, but it has similar characteristics to ABS. The additional advantages of HIPS compared to ABS are less temperature shrinkage and less toxic odor during printing. HIPS printouts are matt, smooth and can be mechanically postprocessed. HIPS can serve as a support material for ABS because it is soluble in concentrated citric acid (D-Limonene).
