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... $\endgroup$ Apr 27, 2019 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. $\endgroup$ Apr 27, 2019 at 10:46
  • $\begingroup$ Not .blend but LibreOffice accepts e.g. Collada. $\endgroup$ Apr 27, 2019 at 11:11
  • $\begingroup$ Did you test this? Why would packing change the result of an export? $\endgroup$ Apr 27, 2019 at 12:00

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
