As eLearning developers, we often use 3-D objects in our courses. Often, we use expensive software to create these objects.
We can reduce costs by creating 3-D objects in PowerPoint. In Microsoft PowerPoint 13, we have an option called merge shape in the insert menu. Using this option, we can create many 3-D objects and this saves the time of instruction designers and graphic designers. Let us now see how to create a pyramid shaped object.
Step1: Create a pyramid shaped object by using SmartArt in the Insert menu.
Step2: Add colors to the ‘pyramid’.
Step3: Select the shape and click on option Convert to Shapes in the Design tab.
Step4: Now convert the pyramid into a 3-D object by right clicking on it and select Format Object.
Step5: Set the value in format shape -> 3-D Rotation -> X rotation 3500
Step6: Add depth to the shape as follows: Format Shape -> 3-D Format -> Depth 350 pt
Step7: Finally add some effects to enhance the aesthetic value of the object.
Thus, instead of creating 3-D objects in Flash, you can use PowerPoint to make them using the above steps. Do you have anything to say? Please do share.
