This paper presents a four-step training model based on pedagogical methodologies for introducing CAD (Computer-Aided Design) modelling tools and 3D printing technologies to adult trainees. Nowadays, 3D modeling techniques and 3D printing technologies are emerging core competencies due to the increasing popularity of STEAM education frameworks. The proposed training model has these four stages for trainees’ team: a) theoretical background of program based on traditional educational techniques, b) e-learning tools and parallel interaction with the trainer, c) micro-teaching frameworks and case studies and d) brief questionnaires with motivation and satisfaction criteria completed by the trainees. The present paper attempts to identify the pleasure and satisfaction of participating in New Technologies Education through CAD (Computer-Aided Design) modelling tools and 3D printing technologies program.
