Among all the Shape Effects in PowerPoint 2013, the 3-D ones stand apart. For any of the 3-D effects to work, you must understand two important 3-D parameters — these two parameters are 3-D Rotation and 3-D Depth. Although you can rotate any shape that has a Depth of zero, you really cannot see any Depth within a flat object. Thus you must first rotate your object and then add Depth. We already covered the Bevel effect in a previous tutorial. In this tutorial, we will cover 3-D Rotation, and in the next tutorial, we will explore 3-D Depth.
