expression. PresetThreeDFormat

_expression_A variable that represents a ThreeDFormat object.

Return Value



The PresetThreeDFormat property value can be one of the ** MsoPresetThreeDFormat** constants declared in the Microsoft Office type library.

Each preset extrusion format contains a set of preset values for the various properties of the extrusion. If the extrusion has a custom format rather than a preset format, this property returns msoPresetThreeDFormatMixed.

The values for this property correspond to the options (numbered from left to right, top to bottom) displayed when you click the 3-D Style button on the Formatting toolbar.

Use the SetThreeDFormat method to set the preset extrusion format.


This example sets the extrusion format for the first shape on the first page of the active publication to 3-D Style 12 if the shape initially has a custom extrusion format. For this example to work, the specified shape must be a 3-D shape.

Sub SetPreset3D() 
 With ActiveDocument.Pages(1).Shapes(1).ThreeD 
 If .PresetThreeDFormat = msoPresetThreeDFormatMixed Then 
 .SetThreeDFormat msoThreeD12 
 End If 
 End With 
End Sub
