HIPS FlexyDualie

I was thinking about trying to make a Flexie-Dualie with HIPS parts instead of ABS, any recommendations or reasons why not?

Edit: Corrected Title

Should be fine.

Printed out okay, layer adhesion wasn’t as good as with abs and i had issues with corner lifting. I used some limonene to fix the places where the layers were coming apart.

Here are some pictures.


Nice build…

I was wondering the same things, HIPS vs. ABS for strength of parts, technical specs are pretty close, just wondering about anyone’s practical experience. I have some light blue HIPS that I’d like to use for heavy use parts like extruder drive gears etc. I don’t want those to break on me…
