Key details

AutoCAD 3D training course teaching existing users the concepts behind 3D modelling, and skills for producing 3D parts and models in AutoCAD.

You’ll learn about the fundamental concepts behind 3D modelling, and techniques for:

  • Creating 3D models from your 2D designs.
  • Creating full working drawings of your 3D models.
  • Producing visualisations of models.
  • Using lighting and materials to enhance your designs.

This course is ideal for users proficient in using AutoCAD to produce 2D drawings who now want to take advantage of AutoCAD’s 3D modelling capabilities.

Where does training take place?

Courses are available at our centres at Birmingham, Bristol, Milton Keynes, Reading and Sheffield.

Click here for details about our training centres.

Accredited AutoCAD training

Armada is an Autodesk Authorised Training Centre (ATC), and our AutoCAD 3D training courses are accredited by Autodesk.

Expert trainers

AutoCAD 3D training is hosted by Autodesk Certified Instructors, with vast experience of using the application professionally.

How will I learn?

AutoCAD 3D training is hands-on and practical.

Our trainers teach the necessary theory then demonstrate techniques step-by-step. You then practice the techniques taught on a computer running AutoCAD.

There is plenty of time to ask questions, and you can take away all the files you create.

Training guide and certificate

AutoCAD 3D course delegates receive:

  • A comprehensive AutoCAD 3D training guide, to refer to throughout the course, and to use as a refresher afterwards.
  • An e-certificate confirming successful completion of an accredited AutoCAD 3D training course. This is emailed to delegates directly from Autodesk. Click here to see an example of the certificate you receive.


You should be familiar with the fundamentals of AutoCAD, i.e. have attended AutoCAD Essentials training or have equivalent knowledge through other means.

Ideally, you will be proficient in some or all of the techniques taught in our AutoCAD Intermediate course, but this isn’t essential.

Our guarantees to you

We offer:

On-request AutoCAD 3D training also available

As well as our scheduled courses, AutoCAD 3D training is also available on-request, i.e. one-to-one training or a ‘closed’ course for your group.

On-request courses can be hosted at one of our centres or your venue. Your training can be tailored to take into account any existing knowledge you have, and the work you’re going to be doing in AutoCAD. See On-request AutoCAD training for details.
