How to Use the New 3D Model Feature in PowerPoint?

How to Use the New 3D Model Feature in PowerPoint

We can now add 3D models into PowerPoint presentations!

This feature is available for Office 365 subscribers. It is also available in all of Microsoft Office applications, like Word and Excel.

Have you tried the 3D model feature in PowerPoint?

If not, you should try it out.

Imagine being able to present a 3D model in PowerPoint to your client.

It takes a PowerPoint presentation to the next level!

The 3D model feature in PowerPoint has been developed with special features that enable cross-platform flexibility.

3D models in PowerPoint can enable you to be creative and productive.

3D models have been around for a long long time and we have seen them in action in several applications and many industries use  3D model software  to develop plans and project models.

Microsoft recognized this requirement of PowerPoint users and made it possible to insert 3D models in PowerPoint.

Currently, it works only with Windows PowerPoint, not on the Mac version.

3D modeling in PowerPoint presentations is an added bonus for those from the entertainment, gaming, architecture, publishing, advertising, and marketing, geology and science industries, to name a few.

And guess what?

You can also create 3D models by using  Paint 3D  which is available with Windows 10 (latest version, office insider builds) as a default app.

You can download royalty free models from . Remiz3D is a community where you can store and share all your 3D models. You can save them directly from 3D Paint.

Getting started with 3D Models in PowerPoint

Inserting 3D models follows the same steps that you would use to insert photos or videos in PowerPoint.

Open a new PowerPoint or an existing deck that you want to add 3D Models to.

Go to  Insert  → Select  3D Models

Insert 3D modles

From the drop-down menu, you can pick how you want to insert a 3D file.

Inserting 3D models dropdown

If you have your own 3D models that you want to insert into the presentation, that is awesome!

There are specific 3D file formats that can be inserted into PowerPoint slide. See below.

Type of 3D model file format

Select the format that your file is saved as.

If you don’t have a file, then you can opt for “ Online Source ” where you can search for what you want, or you can pick free models from Remix 3D.

Remix 3D source

If you have an account with Remix 3D, you can easily create 3D models in 3D Paint and save them in the community.

Once you insert the 3D model, you can rotate the model according to the angle you want to view it from.

To be able to rotate the model, click on the 3D model and the rotation tool will appear at the center. Hold the mouse pointer inside the rotation tool then rotate it freely in any direction.

3D models

However, you will encounter a few limitations when using 3D models in PowerPoint. You can’t edit 3D models within PowerPoint. At least not yet, until the tool is improved. Customization has to be done in Paint 3D.

There are restrictions when it comes to animation too. However, it works well with morph transition and the Pan & Zoom feature of 3D models.

Adding animation

Morph transition is as effective as animation. Let’s see how.

Say you have a slide with 3D models.

Let’s add some effects to give the slide some motion. First things first. Fix the position of the models as per your preferences before adding the morph effect. Here is an example.

3D models in PPT

Select a model. Here we have selected Earth. To change the size of the model, in the menu section, go to format and select the Pan & Zoom feature.

Pan and Zoom format in PowerPoint 3D model

You will see an icon on the right side of the model you selected. Click on the  +  icon and you will notice your cursor change into a two-direction arrow.

Use your mouse to zoom in and out and resize or change the focus of the object. You can also use the four corners of the model to resize the object.

Once you have positioned the objects, duplicate the slide.

In the duplicate slide, reposition the objects to how you would like the slide to appear after. Like a before and after effect. See image below.

microsoft powerpoint 3d presentation design

Now add morph transition to the slides.

Go to transition and select Morph.

microsoft powerpoint 3d presentation design

Under the  Timing section , you can set the duration, you can add sound, and under the  advance slide , you can select if you want to have the morph come in at mouse click or without it and you can just set the duration.

There, you have animation! Morph is a fantastic feature to create an animation effect.

You don’t need to be a design expert to be able to create simple 3D animation in PowerPoint.

I created the above slides in just two minutes. And here is the final result.

For those who are familiar with 3D modeling, it might be disappointing that Microsoft currently does not support camera angle and lighting as it does in other 3D modeling software .

When it comes to filing size for decks made using 3D models in PowerPoint, it is more or less similar to decks with images. But again, it all depends on the size of the 3D model used.

If the size is too large, then it will affect the responsiveness of the PowerPoint deck, and the deck might take longer to load.

Since the 3D model is a new feature in Microsoft Office, I guess we will see improvements soon.

What do you think of the new 3D model feature in Microsoft Office?

PowerPoint 3D: add another dimension to your presentation.

Get to grips with PowerPoint’s built-in 3D objects to bring your presentation to life.

Do you, like so many others, find your slides to be lacklustre, flat, and lifeless? There are loads of clever design tricks you could utilise, to add depth and dimension to your PowerPoint slides, but they all take time, skill, and an eye for design. If you don’t have all these ingredients for success, fear not: you can take advantage of PowerPoint’s built-in 3D objects and add the third dimension, without all that unnecessary hard work.

In this article, Jaz, Senior Presentation Experience Specialist at Buffalo 7, takes us through the multi-dimensional world of possibilities available to us, thanks to PowerPoint 3D.

Doesn’t time fly?

Can you believe it’s been three years since  Microsoft added 3D objects  to the wealth of features found within PowerPoint? When it was first released, there wasn’t much meat on the bones, and though we could see the potential, the team here at Buffalo 7 were a little disappointed. However, after a few updates, we’ve finally got something decent to play with, and the Buffs can’t keep their hooves off it.

In the Treehouse , we’re continually looking for new ways to push the boundaries of PowerPoint design. Without sounding too clichéd, we believe the ability to add 3D objects into PowerPoint really was a game changer, and the game continues to evolve with each update.

The days of white slide backgrounds, awful stock photography, and lifeless text are on their way out. With tools this advanced available, and without even having to leave PowerPoint, there really is no excuse for bad slides. This 3D functionality gives you more design options, making it easier to illustrate your point, immerse your audience in a new world, or even give a fully-interactive demo, without having to carry the physical product around with you.

The possibilities of PowerPoint 3D

Imagine you work for a mobile phone company and you want to show off every new feature of the latest model. By simply using an app* for your smartphone, you could turn a real-life phone into a 3D object that imports straight into PowerPoint. Once imported, you can edit, animate and even interact with the object.

* Trnio  for iPhone is one example, but this isn’t an endorsement

What if you were a property developer looking for investment? You could show your proposed plans, and even create a 3D animation of the build progress, all from within PowerPoint. 

Or what if you were responsible for updating the entire company on finances, once a week? To avoid that usual wave of yawns from your audience, you could integrate 3D charts and graphs to really liven it up and revive engagement levels.

In the past, 3D design would’ve only been accessible through a motion graphics designer and then  imported into PowerPoint as a video . The ability to do all this natively in PowerPoint means you can create impactful 3D worlds within your presentation, without relying on specialists to create and amend your 3D designs. This also removes the associated cost that comes with hiring outside help. 

What’s not to like? Here’s how you get it done.

How to insert 3D objects into PowerPoint

Firstly, you’ll need an  Office 365  subscription. Whenever Microsoft release a new feature, if you’re a 365 subscriber, you’ll automatically get access to all the latest goodies. 

You may need to check for updates:

1. Open PowerPoint and create a new presentation

2. Go to  File  then  Account

3. Under  Product Information , choose  Update Options  and  Update Now

NOTE: You may need to click  Enable Updates  first, if you don’t see the  Update Now  option right away.

4. After Office is done checking and installing updates, close the pop-up window 

5. Close, and then re-open, PowerPoint and you should now see  3D Models  under the  Insert  tab in your top ribbon

Working with PowerPoint 3D

Now that you have the capability, you have to make some tough decisions: which 3D model to choose first?

Navigate to the  Insert  tab and click  3D Models,  then click  From online sources,  and you’ll be able to choose from the catalogue at  Remix 3D , without leaving PowerPoint. Over the last three years, this catalogue has grown at an impressive rate. There are now 59 categories and plenty of design styles to choose from.

Alternatively, you might want to open up even more options by sourcing your 3D objects from external sites, such as  Turbosquid . Watch out for your file types, though, as PowerPoint only currently supports: 

If you do source your 3D models elsewhere, you can add them into PowerPoint by navigating to the  Insert  tab, clicking  3D Models , but, this time, choosing  From a File…

Once, you have your perfect 3D object, you can start to really have some fun.

Playing with movement in 3D

Tilt and rotate.

Under  3D Model Tools , you’ll see a tab labelled  Format . This is where you can get to grips with some easy-to-use functions, that will add movement to your slides, without any fuss.

3D Model Views

This is a collection of pre-set angles that you can use to manipulate the audience’s view of your 3D object.

Pan & Zoom

Control how your 3D image fits within the frame. Click the  Pan & Zoom  button, then click and drag the 3D object to move it. 

Use the Zoom arrow on the right-side of the frame to make the object appear larger or smaller.

Animation effects PowerPoint

Now that Microsoft has integrated animation options, 3D models are more customisable than ever. With options for entrance, exit and emphasis, there’s a multitude of possibilities for how you choose to direct the movement of your 3D model. 

Once you’ve added the 3D animation effect of your choice, you can check out our  ultimate guide to animation to learn how to set timings, create smooth animations and get a little more complex with your movement.

These animation updates make it much easier to enhance your visual narrative than in earlier iterations of PowerPoint 3D. Previously, users had to rely on the Morph transition to do all the heavy lifting, which was time-consuming, and not always the best tool for the job.

However, Morph remains an excellent option for more advanced PowerPoint users. If you did want to learn how to combine 3D and Morph, check out this blog . 

Microsoft keep bringing the goods with each and every update.  Zoom ,  PowerPoint Designer  and Morph all spring to mind, but PowerPoint 3D is our favourite yet. 

By taking advantage of PowerPoint 3D, most of the hard work has been done for you. All that’s left to do is wow your audience and leave them shocked that you created slides that seem to jump off the screen, without leaving PowerPoint.

Create custom 3D models for PowerPoint

microsoft powerpoint 3d presentation design

When Microsoft brought out 3D models support in PowerPoint, we were all a bit excited. From first experiments rotating objects with Morph to ambitious plans to recreate Star Wars in our favourite presentation software, we were determined to push boundaries. However, there are only so many times you can play around with the animated 3D T-Rex to make it look like he’s about to eat your audience. (I know, I’ve tried). There usually comes a point where you want to create your own 3D models in PowerPoint to add that little pinch of excitement to your presentation. If you don’t know where to begin, fear not. We have just the guide for you!

We decided to start with a cube. It’s easy to achieve, but we can guarantee it will raise your status amongst your friends and colleagues. (If they’re not that impressed, we recommend better friends. No one needs that kind of negativity in their life.) To see what you’ll be able to achieve once you’ve read this article, have a quick look at the video below.

Ready to give a go? Perfect.

For this tutorial, you’ll need two different pieces of software. The first one is PowerPoint, which you should already have. The second is a free Windows app called 3D Builder . You can get it from the Windows Store.

Step 1: Create your cube’s faces

Open PowerPoint and create a new presentation. Add a blank slide.

Insert six squares. Make sure the squares are the same size using BrightSlide’s Match Size tool. BrightSlide is our brilliant, free PowerPoint design and productivity add-in with lots of helpful tools perfect for PowerPoint people! You can download BrightSlide here .

You can style your squares however you want to (colour fill, transparent, with or without outlines,…). Add text or pictures inside. We used a mix of illustrations and text.

Build 3D model faces in PowerPoint

Once you’re happy with how your squares look, save them individually as pictures. Select one square (and all its content), right-click, and select Save as Picture .

Save faces as images

Select the destination and save as PNG . You should end up with six pictures like this:

microsoft powerpoint 3d presentation design

Step 2: Create your 3D cube

Here comes the exciting bit. Once you’ve installed the 3D Builder, open it. On the welcome screen, click on New Scene .

Use 3D Builder to create model

Once the scene is created, go to the top-left and click on Insert > Cube . Congratulations! You now have a 3D model of a cube.

microsoft powerpoint 3d presentation design

The next step is to add the designed faces you’ve already made. To do that, make sure your cube is selected, then go to Paint > Texture .

microsoft powerpoint 3d presentation design

This will open the painting options. From there, click on Selected > Load . It will open a browsing window and you can navigate to the folder where you saved the faces. Select the first one.

Select texture

If you now hover over the cube, your cursor will change to a little airbrush icon. Click on one face to apply it. It should now look like this (though, obviously, with your design instead):

Add images to 3D model

Click in the grey area to rotate around the cube and repeat this process for each face. Remember, you’ll have to load the new surface every time. Once you’re happy with it, click the Apply button in the top left.

Click to apply images

That’s it! Your model is ready. You just need to save it. Click on the Save icon in the top-right corner and select the destination folder. Make sure it is saved as a .3mf file.

Saving 3D model file

There we go. Just one final step left before you create literal magic.

Step 3: Importing and animating 3D models in PowerPoint

Go back to PowerPoint. Either create a new file or use the one in which you created the faces. Go to the Insert tab, then 3D Models > From a File…

Insert 3D model

Find your cube and insert it. This will place your 3D cube on the slide. Arrange it however you want for its starting position:

adding 3D model to Powerpoint

Once you’re happy, select the slide in the panel on the left and hit Ctrl+D (or right-click and Duplicate Slide ). On the new slide, move the model so that it shows a different face. Repeat this process however many times you need.

When this is done, select all slides showing the cube, then go to the Transitions tab and select Morph in the drop down menu.

PowerPoint morph transition

That’s it! You’re done. Hit F5 or go into Show Mode , and watch your 3D model rotating around with each click. You can also go back and forth using the Left and Right arrows on your keyboard.

This technique can be applied to more complex elements, so feel free to have a play around with 3D Builder. It’s probably the least intimidating 3D software out there and is a great starting point (not to mention, free!). To give you an idea of what’s possible, here’s an animated zoetrope that was built in the same way as the cube:

Want to have a play with the cube we created? You can download it here .

"PowerPoint found an error that it can't correct. You should save presentations, quit, and then restart PowerPoint." Except, well, you can’t save, because that’s when the error appears. And nobody likes to lose work...

microsoft powerpoint 3d presentation design

This is amazing ! thanks for sharing.

However I’m looking for a tuto that will allow me to make turn an excel graphic like in this video at 00:32

If you can help me it will be great

Thanks a lot in advance

This is beautiful

This was great…is there anyway to access the 3d ms models and save them directly to my hard drive to use the models in non microsoft programs? ty also can you make available the zoetrope model file?

Glad to hear you liked it! For saving models, the best way to do that would be to go through 3D builder (New Scene > Insert > Add). From there you can get any 3D model available through Microsoft, then, once it’s loaded in your scene, you can save it wherever you want as a .3mf file.

As for the zoetrope file, we’d rather not share it externally. However, you can use the tutorial above to create your very own (in 3D Builder, go to Insert > Custom > Cylinder, and then you can customise it really easily). Let us know if you have anymore questions!

Excellent. No puffery; just facts and encouragement. Thanks

Thank you ! It helped me a lot.

Many thanks for the simple and straight forward explanation on this topic. Really help me in my current project.

Nice, thank you!

Thank you, great way to explain the process, easily.
