The function defines a transformation that rotates elements around a fixed axis in 3D space as the rotated() CSS function, and its result is a <tranform-function> datatype. To make an image 3D in CSS, we can use the following 3D transformation method, 

  • rotateX() 
  • rotateY() 
  • rotateZ() 

To make a shape, CSS can make all sorts of shapes, squares, and rectangles easy, as they are the natural shapes of the web. With the CSS transform property, we can use the following 3D transformation methods, rotateX() rotateY() rotateZ(). Then add a width and height, and we have the exact size rectangle we need. Then add border-radius, we can round that shape, and then enough of it, we can turn those rectangles into circles and ovals. To make a circle, we can set the border radius on the elements, creating curved corners on the element. Then if we set it to 50 percent, it will make a circle. To get an oval instead, set a different width and height. 

Here is an example of 3D image rotation in CSS: 

Fig : Preview of the output that you will get on running this code from your IDE.



Follow the steps carefully to get the output easily.

  1. Install Visual Studio Code IDE.
  2. Create new folder, inside the folder create index.html and index.css file.
  3. Copy the snippet using the 'copy' and paste it in that index.css file in your IDE.
  4. Cut the div tag at the end of the code and paste it in index.html file and link the css file into html file.
  5. Save the file and run the html file directly from the location to get the output of 3D view.

I hope you found this useful.

Environment Tested

I tested this solution in the following versions. Be mindful of changes when working with other versions.

  1. The solution is created and tested in Visual Studio Code 1.74.1.

Using this solution, we are able to implement 3D image rotation in css with simple steps. This process also facilities an easy way to use, hassle-free method to create a hands-on working version of code which would help us to implement 3D image rotation in css.
