Our study aims to identify potential developmental factors that would help first-year engineering students develop the ability to model a 3D object using computer-aided design (CAD) software. Three-dimensional modelling has been linked to spatial ability, the development of which seems to benefit from the practice of certain leisure activities. Can this contribution be extended to the development of some of the 3D modelling skills which are implemented in CAD software? Our results confirm that spatial skills do contribute to the development of 3D modelling skills. In contrast, we found no relation between leisure activities and 3D modelling skills, which would indicate a need for specific training.
