This course provides a basic understanding of how to design and modify 3D models with AutoCAD.

AutoCAD 3D for New Users helps users better visualise and present designs that are created with CAD. This course introduces delegates to the fundamental concepts and workflows for creating 3D models with AutoCAD. Delegates explore how to create and modify both solid and surface models. Delegates also learn how to output 3D models from the CAD system to either paper or a distributable, electronic version. The concepts and practices taught will help delegates take their AutoCAD designs beyond 2D to the next dimension – 3D!

Hands-on exercises throughout the course are used to demonstrate the modelling process using techniques that can be applied to the mainstream drafting industries.

Who Should Attend? 

The delegate should be proficient working with 2D objects in AutoCAD and have a need to create 3D models of their designs.

It is recommended that delegates have a working knowledge of Microsoft Windows, the current or a previous release of AutoCAD, creating and editing basic AutoCAD objects, creating and working with layouts.


On completion of the course, you will be presented with an Autodesk Authorised Training Certificate.

Virtual Training

The technology that we use to deliver our courses has been specifically designed to ensure that the learning experience is just as effective as if you are in one of our training centres. The same experienced instructors deliver our virtual training courses and we limit the number of attendees to ensure each one receives the right amount of individual support and attention.

At Our Training Centres

Each of our training suites is laid out classroom style for a maximum of 6 delegates. This class size ensures that the pace of the course is not adversely affected, learning is maximised and there is enough individual time for everyone to ask questions. Each person will have their own PC, with the appropriate course software installed and will be provided the relevant course material. Lunch and refreshments are available throughout the course.

At Your Offices

All the training we offer can be provided onsite at your office location with the minimum of travel disruption and with the whole team together. The training will take place in a designated area away from general office activity to ensure that delegates are not disturbed and are free to give their full attention to the training.
