Add 3D Objects to PowerPoint

Launch PowerPoint app. Next, from the Ribbon menu visible at the top, select ‘Insert’ tab. There, you will notice the 3D Models drop-down to either add a model you’ve created in Paint 3D or grab one from, an online community and catalog of 3D content that enables mixed reality and 3D experiences for Windows 10.


When done, simply drop it into a suitable location of the slide and use the controls (rotating, sizing and positioning) to manipulate the model until it suits your requirements.

Once finished, A new contextual tab 3D Model Tools should appear. Here, you can use the preset 3D Model Views to choose the specific orientation you would like your audience to watch. The good part is you need not go elsewhere to find different images to identify different perspectives. With 3D, you will be in complete control of your presentation!
