ThreeDFormat Object

Multiple objects

Represents a shape's three-dimensional formatting.

Using The ThreeDFormat Object

Use the ThreeD property to return a ThreeDFormat object. The following example adds an oval to the active document and then specifies that the oval be extruded to a depth of 50 points and that the extrusion be purple.

Set myShape = ActiveDocument.Shapes _
    .AddShape(msoShapeOval, 90, 90, 90, 40)
With myShape.ThreeD
    .Visible = True
    .Depth = 50
    ' RGB value for purple
    .ExtrusionColor.RGB = RGB(255, 100, 255)
End With


You cannot apply three-dimensional formatting to some kinds of shapes, such as beveled shapes or multiple-disjoint paths. Most of the properties and methods of the ThreeDFormat object for such a shape will fail.
