WHAT'S A 3D PRINTER?

A 3D printer is a machine that creates a physical object based on digital renderings by "printing" layers upon layers with filament. Every Arapahoe Library has a Lulzbot Mini 2 3D printer to give you the chance to interact and learn about them and other emerging technologies.

WHY DOES THE LIBRARY HAVE A 3D PRINTER?

We invest in emerging technologies to give you the chance to interact and learn about them in an environment that is objective and free of a sales pitch. Read our Technology Mission Statement for the whole story.
