With the Microsoft Office PowerPoint presentation software you can add text, sounds and images to the various slides that you want to appear in your slideshow. If you want to add a 3D image to a slide then you must have the Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro application also installed on your computer. With the program installed, the Acrobat tab will appear in your PowerPoint application and you can then select the 3D model file that you want to embed into your presentation.
