Dr. Schmidt,

We could build you a core and cavity on our RapidToolmaker that produces a
better output than Solidscape. The core and cavity could be investment cast
in any material suitable for a mold. I have done this with a number of small
parts that were not cost effective to produce in quantity by RP methods
