3D in PowerPoint, Word and Excel, is now broadly available to Windows users with O365 subscriptions and the Fall Creators Update and will completely reinvigorate and make your standard presentations stand out. With the new 3D features, you can quickly and easily create presentations in just 5 easy steps. Today, we’re going to show you how to make your PowerPoint presentation pop!

First, open a presentation in PowerPoint.

You don’t need any fancy extensions or plug-ins, just the latest version of Office 365 will do.

Inserting a 3D model is just as easy as inserting a photo or a video.

On the Insert tab, you’ll find 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.

View, resize, and rotate your 3D object.

Drop it into the slide and use the controls to manipulate the model, rotating, sizing and positioning until you like the way it looks. A new contextual tab 3D Model Tools will appear, and you can use the preset 3D Model Views to choose the specific orientation you want your audience to see.

Duplicate your slide and reposition your model to the next view you’d like to highlight.
