This paper presents a result of a decade of teaching and research with students of Faculty of Mechanical Engineering in Kragujevac, Serbia, in an environment established for the course of Rapid Prototyping (RP). The environment is based on the 3D printing and 3D scanning technologies, and their relationship with other technologies. Special attention is devoted to “RepRap”, an open source project, and “RapMan”, a 3D printer based on that technology. The printer has been assembled, tested and brought to production form in Center for Information Technology located at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering in Kragujevac. Experience gained in educational environment in Serbian faculty corresponds to reports of the printer use as an educational tool in many schools all over the Europe, in the first place in United Kingdom.
