This paper is a result of a longer period of use of rapid prototyping system in Centre for information technologies (CIT) at Faculty of Mechanical Engineering of Kragujevac in educational process. Here we present the basics of 3D printing technology and how it relates to other technologies in process of rapid prototyping. Special attention is given to an open source project called RepRap and a 3D printer based on that technology called RapMan that is currently used as educational tool in hundreds of schools all over United Kingdom and Europe.
