If you're already a master of AutoCAD 2D drawing, it may be time for you to move on to the
exciting world of 3D modelling. In this hands-on course based on real-world, industry-specific
design scenarios, you'll explore the fundamental concepts and workflows for creating 3D models
using AutoCAD. You'll learn how to present your designs before they're even finished using
visualisation tools, model walk and fly throws, materials, and lighting. Afterwards, you'll be one
step closer to making your designs real as an advanced AutoCAD user and confident 3D designer.
Using hands-on exercises representing real-world, industry-specific design scenarios, students
explore the fundamental concepts and workflows for creating 3D models using AutoCAD. Students learn
how to create and modify both solid and surface models. This AutoCAD Training course also teaches
students how to present their designs while they are still being created, using visualisation tools
such as visual styles, model walk and fly throws, materials, and lighting. Students also learn how
to output 3D models from AutoCAD to either paper distributable or electronic version.
This AutoCAD Training course is for designers who are familiar with AutoCAD.
We expect you to be proficient in working with 2D objects and have already attended our 101 and
201 courses or has the same relevant experience, creating and editing AutoCAD objects.
After completing this course, students will be able to; represent a design by creating solid
primitives, solid or surface models from cross-sectional geometry, or composite models from
multiple solid models, complete a solid model design by adding the necessary features to detail,
duplicate and position 3D models, convert 2D objects to 3D objects, document a 3D design by
creating 2D drawings for production and visualization, communicate design ideas using visual
styles, lights, model walk-through tools and renderings.

If you need training for 3 or more people, you should ask us about onsite training. Putting
aside the obvious location benefit, content can be customised to better meet your
business objectives and more can be covered than in a public classroom. It's a cost effective option.

simply mention it when we contact you.
