The technology is a novel 3D printer and printhead that allows for the printing of large and complex objects made with flexible silicone elastomers. The system can mix, extrude, and rapidly cure the elastomer in real time, in a way that both enables the printing of free standing shapes while also extending print time by avoiding clogging of the printhead.
