Pikes Peak Makerspace (PPM) is dedicated to supporting our maker community in their creative process by providing shared space, shared tools, software, materials and a knowledge base to turn their ideas into reality.

We maintain three printers and three Design Workstations as well as other computers throughout our space for all our members to use without any additional required training (Level 1).
