DTM currently offers a "rubber-like" material called Somos 201 which was
developed by DuPont for use with the SLS(R) Selective Laser Sintering process.
Parts made with this material have a Shore A Hardness (Durometer) of 81.

There are several service bureaus in North America which use this material. I
invite them to respond to your inquiry if they are interested in quoting this
job. I would also be glad to provide you with some names and numbers if
responses are not forthcoming.
