Learn Drawing and Modelling in 3D


  • 3D views, perspectives, and tools in AutoCAD
  • Working with user coordinate system
  • Creating complex surface and solid
  • Editing and modifying 3D objects
  • Documenting 3D models
  • Creating dynamic slideshows, animations, and renderings

This course is intended for students and professionals who want to produce professional 3D drawings using AutoCAD

After completing the course participants will be able to create 2D drawings and models using AutoCAD.

Solid knowledge and skill on AutoCAD 2D or completion of following course:
IC5001: AutoCAD 2D Drawing and Drafting

This course is an instructor led program with hands on labs and real life scenario. It is delivered with interactive lectures, PowerPoint presentations, question and answer sessions and project. This course is based on BYOD (Bring Your Own Device), participants are expected to bring their own device. There will be a special session for installation of software in their machines before the course starts. However, there will be provision for those who are unable to manage their device.
