Here is the solution for how to include 3D PDFs within a PowerPoint® slide presentation. You no longer have to interrupt the flow of the presentation to leave PowerPoint and use an external viewer, Using the PDF3D in PowerPoint® you can view a 3D PDF file right inside any PowerPoint® slide, and interact with 3D rotation without leaving your presentation. No coding, scripting, or complex setup is required, and it will work with ANY 3D PDF.
The PDF3D in PowerPoint is a PowerPoint® menu add-on, so once installed you will see PDF3D
on the toolbar. By selecting options on the simple plugin wizard, the 3D PDF is linked
so it will show within a region of your slide. The PPT and PDF should be in the same folder.
You should already have the Adobe® Reader or Acrobat® installed, and of course PowerPoint® 2007/2010.
