This research aims at obtaining the material response of homogenized 3D printed elastomers under three loading conditions, uniaxial tension, equibiaxial tension, and planar tension. The finite element model of 3D printed elastomers has been developed, and the architectural effects on its mechanics are studied. The applicability of the rule of mixture is explored to obtain the stress-strain response of 3D-printed elastomers using bulk material properties.
