Multi‐functional rapid prototyping manufacturing system (M‐RPMS) is an important potential developing field and tendency of RP technique. Application area of the M‐RPMS has been discussed in this paper. It is believed that the M‐RPMS has to be developed both for industrial and academic purposes. The openness of software and hardware, the diversity of RP processes and the highest function/cost ratio are the outstanding speciality of the M‐RPMS. This paper also introduces the design principle of the M‐RPMS, the calculation method for function integration degree (FID), the running of SLS in the M‐RPMS and the key of early stage rapid feedback design system.
