How to Create a 3D Object in Microsoft Word
In Microsoft Word, you can do a lot more than simple word processing-you can create charts and graphs, add media, and draw and format shapes. These quick, easy steps will show you how to draw a 3D shape or add 3D effects to existing shapes. Before beginning, make sure you have updated to the latest version of Microsoft Word.
There are 3 methods. They are:
  1. Drawing 3D Objects.
  2. Converting 2D Objects to 3D.
  3. Adding 3D Effects to Text and WordArt.
  • Drawing 3D Objects:
1. Select Insert-> Shape: You'll find the "Insert" menu at the top of the screen.
  • Mac users will see a menu of shapes appear on the right side of the screen.
  • PC users will see a drop down menu of shapes.
2. Select a 3D shape: As you scroll through the available shapes, you'll see a small selection of pre-formatted 3D objects, including a cube, a cylinder ("can"), and a bevel. Click on your desired shape to select it.
3. Draw your 3D shape: Click anywhere on your document and your shape will appear in previously determined measurement, usually equalling or close to 1"x1".
  • You can also click and drag to draw your shape in the desired dimensions.
4. Modify your shape: You can modify your shape by clicking on it to reveal resize boxes. Click and drag any of these to resize your object and also change the direction it's facing.
  • Converting 2D Objects to 3D
1. Select Insert-> Shape: You'll find the "Insert" menu at the top of the screen.
  • Mac users will see a menu of shapes appear on the right side of the screen.
  • PC users will see a drop down menu of shapes.
2. Draw a 2D object: Click on a 2D object that you'd like to convert to three dimensions. Click on your document and your shape will appear.
3. Open the format menu: Right click (for Mac users, Ctrl + click) the shape and select "Format Shape".
4. Rotate your object in three dimensions: Select "3-D Rotation" and use the rotation buttons to turn your shape along the X, Y, and Z axes. Play with the rotation until your shape is facing the desired direction.
  • You need to rotate the shape along the X or Y axis to see the depth you are about to add.
5. Add depth to your object: Still in your "Format Shape" menu, select 3-D Format-> Depth and Surface. Increase the "Depth" value to your desired depth and watch your 2D shape become 3D.
  • You can experiment with the depth amount and the X, Y, and Z angles until you are satisfied with the look of your 3D object.
  • The 3-D Format-> Bevel menu allows you to add more 3D effects to the top and bottom of your object.
6. Click "Ok" when you are finished.
  • Adding 3D Effects to Text and WordArt
1. Add a Text Box or WordArt: Select Insert-> Text Box or Insert-> WordArt. You'll find the "Insert" menu at the top of the screen. Draw your box and type your desired text in the box.
2. Add 3D effects to the box: Right click (for Mac users, Ctrl + click) your WordArt or Text Box and choose "Format Shape" from the drop menu. Under "3-D Rotation", change the X and/or Y axis number, under "3-D Format", increase the value of the depth.
  • You can experiment with the depth amount and the X, Y, and Z angles until you are satisfied with the look of your 3D object.
  • To better the 3D effects you've added to the object, change the fill color in the "Format Shape" menu.
3. Add 3D effects to the letters: Right click (for Mac users, Ctrl + click) your WordArt or Text Box and select "Format Text Effects" from the drop menu. Under "3-D Rotation", change the X and/or Y axis numbers; under "3-D Format," increase the value of the depth.
  • To better see the 3D effects you've added to the object, change the fill color in the "Format Text Effects" menu.
