I have created a 3D model and added texture to it in Blended.

How do I save the file in a way that it keeps the texture so I can use it in PowerPoint 365.

Seem to always lose the colour and end up with just the model shape.

    $\begingroup$ Wait, what? Powerpoint can import .blend files? That's new... $\endgroup$ – metaphor_set Apr 27 '19 at 9:08
  • $\begingroup$ Did you follow this tutorial? It shows how to do it, but, alas, the monkey is not textured. Try to pack texture into your .blend file using UVs and then export the object. You may also set PP as your external app. $\endgroup$ – Lukasz-40sth Apr 27 '19 at 10:46
  • $\begingroup$ Not .blend but LibreOffice accepts e.g. Collada. $\endgroup$ – Lukasz-40sth Apr 27 '19 at 11:11
  • $\begingroup$ Did you test this? Why would packing change the result of an export? $\endgroup$ – Ray Mairlot Apr 27 '19 at 12:00

    $\begingroup$ obj file format should work $\endgroup$ – lemon Oct 22 '19 at 14:37

Export GLB file with it's textures and import it to PowerPoint.

how to set up the glb textures properly is shown here: https://docs.blender.org/manual/en/latest/addons/io_scene_gltf2.html

Edit: This is the setup for the textures enter image description here

and then import from file enter image description here
