small part manufacture

Date: Tue Feb 26 2002 - 18:29:21 EET

My main interest is in medical and dental rp but a patient of mine asked
about producing small 1"X 2" custom parts that needed to be made of a
material that was durable but not heavy. I told him that he could create a
.stl file and make a model (Sanders) and then use soft tooling. He wants 1000
units so it may not be practical to use soft tooling. Does he need to make a
metal mold? If you know of people who can help with this process I would
appreciate the help.
