To insert 3D models into PowerPoint, you’ll need a version of PowerPoint that supports 3D models and a compatible file format. Here’s a step-by-step guide:

PowerPoint for Microsoft 365, PowerPoint 2019, PowerPoint 2016:

  1. Open your PowerPoint presentation.
  2. Navigate to the slide where you want to insert the 3D model.
  3. Click on the “Insert” tab in the Ribbon.
  4. In the Illustrations group, click on “3D Models.”
  5. Select “From a File” if you have a 3D model file on your computer. Choose “Online Sources” if you want to insert a 3D model available in Microsoft’s online library.
  6. If you choose “From a File,” browse and select the 3D model file on your computer. If you choose “Online Sources,” you can search and download a 3D model directly from the online library.
  7. Once selected, click “Insert” to add the 3D model to your slide.
  8. You can then use the 3D Model Tools tab that appears in the Ribbon to manipulate and customize the 3D model.

PowerPoint 2013:

PowerPoint 2013 doesn’t have native support for 3D models. However, you can use third-party add-ins or embed 3D models as videos:

  1. Open your PowerPoint presentation.
  2. Navigate to the slide where you want to insert the “3D” effect.
  3. Click on the “Insert” tab in the Ribbon.
  4. In the Media group, click on “Video,” and choose “Online Video.”
  5. Insert a link to an online 3D model viewer or a 3D model video.

Tips:

  • Ensure your PowerPoint is updated to the latest version to access the latest features, including 3D model support.
  • Make sure your 3D model file is in a compatible format, such as .GLB, .FBX, or .3MF.
  • Experiment with the 3D Model Tools tab to adjust the rotation, tilt, size, and other properties of the 3D model.

Remember that the availability of 3D models may vary depending on your PowerPoint version and subscription plan.
