Z-HIPS filament is best for 3D printing large models. Its durability makes it perfect for prototyping machines and functional testing. Compared to standard High Impact Polystyrene, Z-HIPS has been modified to provide your 3D prints with unique semi-mat finish. The material’s surface quality is on par with surfaces of mass produced items. With Z-HIPS you can quickly prototype casings and industrial parts with no post-processing needed. This low-shrinkage material allows you to efficiently run reliable performance tests on models closely resembling final products.
- functional prototyping
- low volume end-use parts production
- models with large, flat surfaces
- architecture mock-ups
- mechanical parts prototypes
- consumer products prototypes
Smooth semi-mat surface
Z-HIPS prototypes perfectly imitate final products. Semi-mat finish reduces the amount of post-processing needed and masks the layering.
Visually stunning, prototypes 3D printed with this polystyrene filament are also suitable for performance and impact tests.
