Product Description

Gizmo Dorks
We provide the highest quality 3D printing materials such as ABS, PLA, HIPS, PVA, and more. Our filaments are run with tight tolerances. There are no air bubbles or oily residues. Every filament comes loaded on a durable, hard plastic spool, not a cheap, flimsy cardboard spool.

HIPS, High Impact Polystyrene, is very similar to ABS. They share a lot of the same characteristics and qualities. However, HIPS is used with different solvents versus ABS. Limonene is used with HIPS instead of Acetone for ABS. Since Limonene does not affect ABS, HIPS is commonly used as a supporting material. HIPS is versatile, economical, and impact resistant.

Compatible with RepRap, Makerbot, UP!, Lulzbot, Afinia, Solidoodle, MakerGear, Printrbot LC, and more!

FAQ?
Is the spindle hole large enough to fit my Makerbot printer?
Yes! Our spindle holes are large enough to fit the Makerbot printers. You don't have to worry about fabricating a spindle extension any longer. *NOTE, these spools will not fit inside of the new Makerbot 5th generation printer drawers. You can still use these spools and feed the filament directly through the top of the printer.

What are some printing tips?
Please use Kapton tape or 3M blue tape. Please use in well ventilated areas.

What other colors are available?
HIPS comes in a variety of different vibrant colors, 12 different options total.

I am very satisfied with this filament. It emits a very faint plastic odor on extrusion, similar to ABS but far less intense. As such I think it's a great alternative to ABS for applications where greater heat resistance than PLA filament can offer is required. I haven't used it as dissolvable support yet but I have tried dissolving some pieces in D-Limonene and it dissolves very quickly, much faster than ABS dissolves in Acetone.

It bonds well with PLA and platform adhesion on a bare surface can be improved using PLA brim in a dual extrusion setup.

The filament is a very bright fluorescent or "nuclear green" type color if that makes any difference for its use.

Went through three spools of different colored Gizmodorks products. The results were inconsistent: Some wet, some dry, layer adhesion is worse than other brands. This is printing a large object (13" long). We had better results with similarly priced Hatchbox 1kg spools, which we've used back-and-forth with Gizmodorks (i.e. printer calibration is not a factor).

I need to order more Hatchbox spools though and see if they're still consistent. I'll update this review if I find any new inconsistencies.

Love this. :) I haven't dissolved it yet, but overall this is a great filament. I set the extruder to be between 195 and 210.

At first when I began using this filament I did not have very good results. Come to find out it had little to do with the filament and everything to do with a heat element on the print bed of my UP. I've used this filament to print out objects as fine as 25 microns. It warps very little, sticks very well to my print bed, and gives very precise models.

I've come to prefer the Gizmo Dorks brand of filament. I'm not sure what they do differently, but I prefer the results using their filament over the countless others I've tried. I think I actually prefer HIPS to ABS, but will need a bit more print time with it before I'll be certain. You can't go wrong with this filament.
