Visualization is crucial in daily life, particularly in fields involving construction or manufacturing. Considering the importance of this topic, we were interested in learning how computer-aided visualisation is presented in Slovenian education. The study's objective was to find out how frequently computer-aided design and construction, or visualization content, is used in Slovenian classrooms. Curricula and knowledge catalogues were analyzed, and the results showed that content is well-represented in educational programs that directly relate to the professional fields of building, designing, and producing models and products; however, these fields are not well-represented in the Slovenian education system. Additionally, a survey was carried out using a sample of 47 Slovenian educators. The results indicated that the primary determinant of the design and construction computer programs teachers select is the software's cost; teachers are primarily self-taught in using the programs; and curricula are well-structured and may contain design and construction content.
