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.
Z-HIPS® is a thermoplastic polymer, high impact resistance allows the use of prototypes enclosures for various types of equipment, starting with housings consumer electronics, ending with the covers for industrial machines where it is not required UV resistance. Z-HIPS has very good processing properties such as - gluing, painting, sanding, sandblasting.
Use Z-HIPS with Zortrax M200® and Z-Suite® Software in order to make easy-to-remove support structure. No additional extruder or filament material required to print with advanced support.
