I have designed a plastic or rubber part, I should say imagined, since the design of the part is the reason I am asking my question, about 75mm long with a multi-contoured outer surface and smooth cylindrical ID about 12-18mm. I want it strong yet flexible, like a hose with an irregular outer surfce 3 inches long. What materials should I consider? Where would IM take over as far as volume?
Where do I go to get a bid on the part and how do I ensure my design is not compromised
