Rubber parts can be molded in a similar way to plastic parts. However, the process is quite different. Normally rubber parts are compression molded whereby a chunk of rubber is heated and pressed between two halves of a mold.
Designing rubber parts is as easy as designing parts made of other materials. Keep the shape simple; avoid thick regions that may not cool readily and avoid tight tolerances.
