Comprehension and representation of elements, either in two or three dimensions, is presented as a main issue in Technical Drawing teaching since spatial capability is no developed in previous years to Higher Education. Furthemore, this is more evident when an isometric representation (3D perspective) is required from the orthographic projection (2D views) of an object [1]. So, it is essential to generate a solution for Engineering or Architecture Degrees, in order to make possible passing drawing and graphic subjects and because of the real need of knowledge and skill acquisition by students, whom must be focused to their professional future [2]. For this reason, ICT tools have been taken into account in the teaching method to help students in the design and generation of three dimensional objects, which will also offer them extra background for any future subject [3, 4].

The objective of this research is to find out whether the practice of teaching methods related with the use of 3D software will improve spatial capability of Technical Drawing students in Engineering. For this purpose, it has been developed a proposal to work spatial visualization through 3D-CAD.

Results affirm that the introduction of ICT software in the teaching and learning process can improve graphic expression skills and learning to learn capacity. It has contributed to a better understanding of concepts, by acquiring the capacity of relating theory with practice through active learning, and developing a holistic vision of the subject. These findings show ICT teaching method as an satisfactory strategy to integrate contents and educational experiences.
