Using the lasers in our spaces requires a "badge." At this time, PPLD is not able to offer in-person badging classes.
There is no cost to use the machine.
Laser reservations have changed. Lasers are available by reservation at all makerspace locations. Reservations are for 1 to 2 hours, up to 2 times a month. They can be made up to one week in advance. Walk-ins are permitted - even if both reservations have already been used - however, usage of the machine cannot be guaranteed. See the link at the bottom of this box to reserve one of the lasers.
The person using the machine must match the registered name.
If the registered person does not check in within the first 15 minutes of the reservation, it is forfeited and the time is given to the next person in line.
If there is no reservation or walk-in after your designated time ends, staff may be able to extend your reservation.
Projects, including prep and cleanup, must be completed by the end of the reservation.
PPLD does not provide or sell materials to use in the laser. Certain locations may have a bin to take or leave scrap materials.
All materials must be approved by staff. Don't worry, we're friendly!
If you are under 18, you must submit a completed Creative Space Use Agreement (link below). You can request one at any makerspace desk, or print one out and bring it to a makerspace staff member.
Adults must agree to the Creative Space Use Agreement terms when making a reservation.
