Does anyone have any recommendations on using HIPS? I have tried it with PETG and Polypropylene with very mixed results. As of right now, all I can think, is that I am putting it on too thick and jamming the other nozzle on my dual. I have been trying to reduce the extrusion, but have yet to find the right combination.
It's a bit brittle, but it's stiffer than ABS in my experience. I used it for small one-piece quadcopter frames. It didn't work as well as I wanted for dissolvable support, the chemical embrittled the ABS.

Can you share what settings you used where it actually stuck to the ABS? I can build nice HIPS towers and nice ABS towers but running them together I can't get the HIPS to build on top of ABS for supports. I would love to know what temp, movement rate, retraction, etc that other people are using successfully.
