After making this video I fully dissolved the print and... it fell apart. I mean I know it's a delicate thing being a skeleton like it is, and I might have been a little rough because I didn't have a good way to remove the print, but it seemed to me that the layers didn't melt together as well where the HIPS was covering it. So as fun as this was it maybe isn't a practical experiment.
You can download the "Gangsta is dead" model on Thingiverse.
Next time we'll do what HIPS is for, supporting a print that would be impossible otherwise. Stay tuned.
