How to Make 3D Object in PowerPoint Spins Forever

A 3D object is just like a 2D object if it wasn’t moving. That’s why you need to emphasize the audiences that the object they are seeing is three dimensional. You can do that by making the object animate.

The most common animation used in 3D models is spinning/rotation mode where audiences could see the object from a different angle.

In Microsoft PowerPoint, you can make the 3D object spins indefinitely during its show. Here is how to do that.

How to make 3D in PowerPoint spins forever

Time Needed : 5 minutes

In this tutorial, you will learn how to spin the 3D object in PowerPoint. It will spin forever unless you end the slide or animate different objects manually. It is highly advised to use the recent versions of PowerPoint.

  1. Go to the Insert menu, select 3D Models, and choose either From a File… or From Online Resources…

  2. Select the 3D Model you want to show.

  3. Head to the Animations menu and select Turntable. It will create a spinning effect on the 3D object.

  4. Still in the Animations menu, click on Animation Pane.

    You may also set up the trigger, duration, and delay here if you wish.

  5. Click the dropdown menu of the animated object, then select Effect Options…

  6. Set the Smooth start, Smooth end, and Bounce end to zero.

  7. Go to the Timing tab, and on the Repeat section, select Until End of Slide. Finally, click OK.

  8. Try to run the slide.

  • Microsoft PowerPoint
  • 3D model

Make sure you choose the trigger and delay correctly because those are the most common factors that prevent the animation from running. Meanwhile, the duration represents how long it would take to finish one full rotation.

Alright. I hope that helps!
