ICDL Foundation is an international organisation dedicated to raising digital competence standards in the workforce, education and society. Our certification programs, delivered through an active network in more than 100 countries, enable individuals and organisations to assess, build and certify their competence in the use of computers and digital tools to the globally-recognised ICDL standard.

As a non-profit social enterprise, ICDL Foundation benefits from the unique support of experts from national computer societies and partners worldwide to develop vendor-independent standards that define the skills and knowledge required to use digital technology effectively. We work with education and training partners, local and regional authorities, national governments, international development organisations as well as public and private sector employers in all sectors, in the delivery of our programs.

The quality and reputation of ICDL is built on over twenty years of experience in delivering our certification programs to over 16 million people and in more than 40 languages worldwide, with more than 2.5 million ICDL tests taken annually. Our success is maintained by our ongoing innovation in certification program development, our commitment to rigorous test design methodologies, and consistent adherence to our quality assurance standards.

ICDL Foundation supports the initiatives of National Operators of the program in Europe and the Arab States from our headquarters in Dublin, Ireland and our ICDL Europe office in Brussels, Belgium. We have also established three regional operations – ICDL Africa (based in Rwanda), ICDL Asia (based in Singapore) and ICDL Americas (based in Panama). All ICDL Foundation operations work closely with regional, national and local partners to develop the global network of ICDL Accredited Test Centres.

3D Design

The 3D Design module covers the main concepts and skills needed to create three-dimensional drawings using computer-aided design (CAD).

This module develops the knowledge and skills to use 3D design software for tasks such as manipulating objects and rendering photo-realistic graphics
using lights, textures, and backgrounds.

This module is suitable for students, designers, engineers, architects, technical staff, and people who want to build on their 2D CAD skills by exploring the potential of 3D modelling. CAD is used extensively in a wide range of industries.

Module Overview

Category Skill set
Basic functions
  • File management
  • Model view
Main operations
  • 3D coordinate systems
  • Geometric design aids
  • 3D geometrical drawing
  • 3D surface modelling
  • 3D manipulate object/graphic elements
  • Create solids
  • Modify solid objects
  • Create and modify parametric objects
Advanced operations
  • 3D views
  • Photorealistic presentation

Learning outcomes

Successful candidates will be able to create, edit, and output a three-dimensional design or drawing. After passing this module, candidates will feel confident using a 3D CAD application to create high-quality designs. They will be able to:

  • understand how 3D design applications are used to create and modify drawings
  • use, save, and recall model view tools such as pan, zoom, and rotate
  • know how to draw points, lines, arcs, splines, circles, and polygons and use surface modelling to extrude surfaces and create planes,
    edge surfaces, and surface revolutions
  • create and manipulate object or graphic elements
  • know how to create photo-realistic presentations by rendering a model or scene
