Time to start printing in HIPS. After @Thomas_Sanladerer review of the Lulzbot it seems it may be a filament worth using.
Can people that have used it give me some general advice on settings for a starting point, bed sticking and temp ( on glass heated)

I have used Coropads and am currently testing the bed film 3D-EEZ. So, far I am leaning towards the 3D-EEZ product. You can get a sample bottle which will do quite a few 200mmx200mm beds. I have totally redone the bed twice and still have 2/3rds of the sample bottle.

It’s very similar to ABS, so you can start with successful ABS settings. I’ve been printing it onto glue stick on glass.

I have read 105 and “daub” on gluestick, you don’t want the glass smooth.

I didn’t like glue stick because of the mess…

HIPS prints fine but it’s not great for structural parts. It’s very brittle.

250C is a good printing temp for it. 80C is probably plenty on the bed.

Cooling Fan ?

No fan needed
