3D Printing

A guide for PPLD's 3D printers


At this time, the 3D printers are not available for public use.

Instead, Library 21c, East Library, and Sand Creek Library are all offering drop-off printing services. Visit the link below to learn more.

3D Printing at Pikes Peak Library District

Makerspaces at PPLD provide the community with access to 3D printing technology through an easy "badging" process and low cost printing. They are located at East Library, Library 21c, and Sand Creek Library.

Access to our makerspaces occurs during location-specific Open Hours, which are designated times the rooms are open for patrons to come in and use the machines. Staff is present to check out machines, answer questions, and assist patrons.

Using the 3D printers in our spaces requires a "badge." Becoming badged is easy: you watch a 20 minute video, take a short quiz, and then notify a staff member the next time you come to the library to use the makerspace. The staff member will verify that you passed the quiz and update your account with the badging.

We offer Lulzbot Mini and Lulzbot TAZ 6 printers at all three makerspace locations.
