expression An expression that returns a 'ThreeDFormat' object.


The RotationX property can be a value from - 90 through 90. A positive value indicates upward rotation; a negative value indicates downward rotation.

To set the rotation of the extruded shape around the y-axis, use the RotationY property of the ThreeDFormat object. To set the rotation of the extruded shape around the z-axis, use the Rotation property of the Shape object.

This example adds three identical extruded ovals to the active document and sets their rotation around the x-axis to - 30, 0, and 30 degrees, respectively.

With ActiveDocument.Shapes 
 With .AddShape(msoShapeOval, 30, 60, 50, 25).ThreeD 
 .Visible = True 
 .RotationX = -30 
 End With 
 With .AddShape(msoShapeOval, 90, 60, 50, 25).ThreeD 
 .Visible = True 
 .RotationX = 0 
 End With 
 With .AddShape(msoShapeOval, 150, 60, 50, 25).ThreeD 
 .Visible = True 
 .RotationX = 30 
 End With 
End With
