• High quality, white HIPS filament
• Designed to work with ROBOX 3D printer
• HIPS is perfect for when to create a strong detailed print
• Each reel provides 850g / 240m of filament (approximately)
• Smart reels have built-in EEPROM module that can be read by the CEL ROBOX 3D printer, giving you data on the stored material – including the amount left on the reelWill this filament work with my 3D Printer?
The Robox HIPS 1.75mm diameter filament is designed to work with the ROBOX 3D printer. The EEPROM module which allows you to keep track of your usage is compatible with the CEL Robox 3D Printer.
Why pick this filament?
HIPS is as strong and stiff as ABS, but is much easier to print with as it is less likely to shrink or warp. It is a dissolvable filament that is frequently used as support material because it is so easily removable, however the material is also unique as you can sand, glue, prime or paint your prints. This extends the possibility of what you can produce on the Robox – beautiful, functional, bespoke prints decorated any way you want.
HIPS is the alternative for prints that are used or stored in an area up to 105°C. As HIPS has a higher melting point, your print has a vastly reduced change of warping. ABS also has more of a bend, to give your design more flexibility.
Check your printer for its filament compatibilities.
Don’t risk running out halfway through a project – stock up on 850g of natural colour HIPS filament (RBX-HIP-NT001), which is suitable for medium to large scale projects.
Storing my filament when not in use
All filaments work better when they stored in a dry and dust-free environment, as moisture can create problems with printing and reduce the lifespan of the filament. This filament comes with a reusable zip-lock bag and an added sachet of silica gel to ensure that, when you come to use or reuse this filament, you’ll have the best quality print every time.
Ensuring you always have enough for a print
A handy built-in EEPROM module stores data on the material and statistics of use which can only be read by the CEL Robox 3D Printer. The EEPROM allows you to determine how much filament is left on the reel, which will allow you to confidently start a print and leave it running without the risk of returning to a print ruined by lack of filament. If the 3D printer you are using isn’t the CEL Robox 3D printer, you may still be able to use this filament.
