We offer several events and workshops throughout the year where you can learn new skills and meet other makers on campus.
We offer certifications in 3D printing, laser cutting, and CNC. You must be certified before independently operating this equipment.
Our certifications include both an online module and an in-person, small-group workshop where you'll learn and practice basic skills using our equipment.
Step 1: Complete online module
You must complete the online module before attending the in-person portion of the certification.
Step 2: Attend in-person workshop
Our certifications have limited spots, so be sure to register online ahead of time.
After you're certified
After you're certified, you can walk in and use any open 3D printers. To ensure the laser cutters will not be in use, reserve it ahead of time. Just check with a CATalyst staff member before starting your project.
Before you come in to work on your project:
- Have your file in Standard Tessellation Language (STL) format for 3D printing projects
- Have your file downloaded and ready to be cut for laser cutting projects
CATalyst staff are also here to help you prepare your files before you start your next project.

CATalyst for community members
Our events are open for everyone, but we do prioritize University of Arizona students, faculty, and staff. The event reservation process is designed for students, so you won't be able to register online. Instead, you can post a request on Discord or email us at email@example.com.
