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.

IF I DON'T DESIGN SOMETHING MYSELF, CAN I STILL GET A 3D PRINT?

We sometimes print promotional giveaways and when we have extras, we give them away for free. Visit your library and talk to a Technology Specialist to find out if we have something available.
