Photoshop 3D Properties Panel

Same like you can drag, slide or scale the 3d object. Now if you see on your right side of the software there is properties panel just after the layers panel. In this panel, you can control lots of options for the 3d layer. You can apply shape preset, or you can increase or decrease extrusion depth. You can also change the text color in this panel. There are main options mesh, deform, cap, coordinates, and 3d paint. See in this image I have changed the color, shape preset and also I have increased the extrusion depth.

  • Specular
  • Illumination
  • Ambient
  • Shine
