This article introduces a newly developed 3D CAD training course for industrial design students, including design rationales, course content and structure, as well as some pedagogical methods, and reports the results of the implementation with achievements throughout the course. The course is designed with three principles; 1) providing a holistic and integrated experience in product development, 2) adopting a designerly way of the formgiving principle and 3) employing top-down & bottom-up modelling strategies. Design educators and researchers could have insight into a better CAD education.
