D-limonene is a naturally biodegradable solvent extracted oil of citrus peels. D-Limonene is used for dissolving the HIPS filaments (polystyrene). It is a colorless liquid at room temperature. HIPS is a filament used among other applications as a support material because of its special feature of solution in D-Limonene. HIPS filament dissolves within 12 to 24 hours when immersed in D-Limonene (without requiring any mechanical action).
Great results from the combination of ABS with HIPS (as carrier material) are obtained. HIPS is completely dissolved in D-limonene and yet D-Limonene not interact with the ABS. You must have a printer with double extruder. Because of this great utility of D-Limonene the use of it is consistently growing in the world of 3D printing, as it opens a wide range of opportunities.
