LSR stands for Liquid Silicone Rubber, and it is a type of material that is used for 3D printing. LSR is a type of silicone rubber that is liquid at room temperature and can be cured or solidified into a solid object when exposed to heat.
LSR 3D printing uses a process called liquid additive manufacturing (LAM) to create parts. In LAM, the liquid silicone is deposited layer by layer using a print head, and then it is cured using a heat source such as a laser or an oven.
LSR 3D printing offers several advantages over other 3D printing methods. One of the biggest advantages is that LSR parts can be printed in a single step, without the need for post-processing or assembly. LSR parts also have excellent elasticity, durability, and resistance to heat, making them ideal for a wide range of applications such as automotive, medical, and consumer goods.
However, LSR 3D printing is still a relatively new technology, and it can be more expensive than other types of 3D printing. It also requires specialized equipment and expertise to operate, making it less accessible for smaller businesses and individuals.
