I have to give a Powerpoint presentation at the end of my Electro-Mechanical Engineering HND. In the presentation I intended placing a 3D drawing of my final design solution, and I was wondering if I could do this so that when the slide is activated the 3D model would do a 360 deg rotation. Can anyone please advise.
I think you are looking for something like this:
Powerpoint does not do that on it's own.
Add-on products for LT
Dean's idea sounds great, but would set you back $1600. If it doesn't have
to be interactive, create an avi file of the 3d rotation and use the avi
file in the powerpoint presentation.

What Autodesk viewer do you have installed?
Autodesk has had at least 3 viewers over the past couple of years. I believe it was VoloView Express that would allow you to use an AutoCAD solid in PowerPoint.
In PowerPoint see what viewer is listed as in the attached image (I use Inventor which allows 3D solid in PowerPoint through Autodesk DWF Viewer).
The dwf can be rotated, zoomed, shaded/wireframe all within PowerPoint.
No, The DWF Viewer is a free download:

It is the Educational version of the Autocad 2004 software that is being
used, does this matter?
I know that I had used a 3D image in PowerPoint years ago with rotate and zoom. Now that I think about it I believe VoloView would read a 3D dwg file. So I guess it wasn't dwf but the functionality was the same.
Thank you for the advice, I have been able to embed one of my 3D drawings into the powerpoint, but on the viewer the model is only seen in 2d, with no orbit facility availiable. I'am running out of time, have you any ideas where I might have gone wrong?
