3D in da PowerPoint

Previously, 3D has been used in PowerPoint in two ways:

• to make charts look “prettier"

• to distort data.

Notice how Apple's 19.5% share looks larger than 21.2%.

You're unlikely to face such mistakes nowadays.

But 3D comes back to PowerPoint in a completely different manner.

In 2017, Office 365 added support for 3D objects.

They can be inserted from Microsoft`s database (Remix3D)

or you can insert your own 3D objects (in .fbx, .obj, .3mf, .ply, .stl, .glb).

Technical details of working with 3D objects can be found on the official Microsoft website.

How to find out whether you have support for 3D objects? You definitely have if there's a button “3D Objects” in the Insert tab.

If the button is missing, you should update your PowerPoint.

In what cases should I use 3D objects?


If you want to surprise the audience

Few people know about the possibility to insert 3D objects into PowerPoint. And it can really surprise the audience.

It is important to understand that 3D objects aren't remarkable by themselves. Animation of 3D objects using Morph — it looks much more interesting.

What works in your PowerPoint may not work on another computer.

If you open a presentation with 3D objects on a computer with an older version of PowerPoint, all models will be replaced with static images.

Use 3D where appropriate. Don't forget that a speaker is the only one who matters, not a presentation.

Therefore, all PowerPoint updates should not be used only as decoration.
You can use them if they are really valuable for your audience, able to impress it, or help in understanding information
