The article deals with creating 3D models using RAPID PROTOTYPING technology. At present, we are witnessing the integration of new technologies into ordinary life. A good example is the use of FDM (fused deposition modeling) technology that primarily uses thermoplastics to create 3D models. A few years ago, the use of rapid prototyping technology was a prerogative of companies, research institutes and a narrow group of universities. Technologies such as FDM and STL (Stereolithography) have become affordable in the past few years for smaller businesses and individuals. The specific segment is the replicating rapid prototype RepRap (replicating rapid prototype), the extended version of which is the Prusa i3 printer.
Key words: rapid prototyping / FDM / prototype
