Abstract—The present research consists of the implementation of Computer-Aided Design (CAD) and Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) software as a didactic support resource in the “Model and Prototypes 1 Workshop” of the Industrial Design degree, in which students learn and practice different representation techniques three-dimensional, to be able to occupy them later in the generation of models or prototypes of the designs made in the subjects of projects and the professional practice. However, it is necessary to familiarize yourself with the techniques and tools most frequently used in professional practice that provide more remarkable or excellent performance when the combination of specialized software and manual processes generates a better understanding of the manufacturing process and accelerates learning. The process was implemented in a total of 42 students, divided into two groups, one in 2017 and another in 2018. 
Keywords—industrial design, prototyping, CAD-CAM, higher education, educational innovation
