Step 3: Import your 3D model into PowerPoint
To insert 3D into PowerPoint, you need PowerPoint 365 and a 3D Models item on the Insert tab (in the Illustrations group). If you don’t have it, you’ll have it soon. I have the Insider Fast setting, so I get new features soonest. Read more about becoming an Office Insider here.
To insert a 3D model, choose Insert, 3D Models, From a File and navigate to the 3D model you created. Select it and click Open.
Here are the formats that PowerPoint accepts:
- 3D Manufacturing Format: 3MF
- Filmbox Format: FBX
- Object Format: OBJ
- Polygon Format: PLY
- Stereolithography Format: STL
- Binary GL Transmission Format: GLB
When selected, your 3D model will have a 3D rotation icon at its center as you see here. Just drag that icon around in all directions to see how you can rotate it.
