Bjorn's 3D Word Clouds

Create 3D word clouds

- a Google Sheets extension -

Create three dimensional "word clouds". Add animations to create eye catching videos. Export as PNG, WEBM (video) or GIF. Publish to Bjorn's Doorways to create unique portal to your presentation, blog or website.

Choose from different layouts - Cloud slab, Cloud slab flat, Box, Column, Column with vertical text, Sphere or 3D text.

Version 3 News

  • Cloud slab layout - turning a standard 2D layout into a 3D scene. Use the various 2D cloud properties to customize your cloud.
  • Min/max animations - highlight the phrases with the highest (lowest) scores with animations (e.g. wobble)
  • Improved UX to select custom images for the ground shape
  • Improved auto-centering of clouds
  • Each phrase can be removed from layout without deleting it - see the "Disabled" column in the Data tab

 

Important Get Started Info

3D clouds tend to work better for smaller datasets, perhaps 15 to 20 phrases. Use the Filters available in the Properties sidebar to customize your dataset.

Use the mouse and the scroll wheel to change the camera position. You might have to try different angles and distance to get the best result.

You customize the ground shape, look for the "Ground shape" drop down menu in the designer.

Exporting

You can export a cloud to video, GIF or PNG. To insert a video into a presentation, first create the video and then upload the video to your Gdrive and finally insert the video into the presentation.
