How to Install the 3D Builder app Offline

Microsoft’s 3D Builder app lets you view, create, and edit 3D objects. However, the 3D Builder app seems to be currently unavailable from the Microsoft Store. Clicking on the following 3D Builder Store app link opens the Store app’s page, but the Install option is missing.

However, you can download the 3D Builder offline installer package and its dependency packages.

You can download the 3D Builder offline installer from Microsoft via the Microsoft Store – Generation Project third-party portal.

  1. Visit https://store.rg-adguard.net/
  2. Paste the following link in the text box provided:
    https://apps.microsoft.com/detail/9wzdncrfj3t6
  3. Click the button with a tick mark.
  4. Download these three files:
    • (a) Microsoft.WindowsPreview.Kinect.8.1_2.0.1410.19000_x86__8wekyb3d8bbwe.appx
    • (b) Microsoft.VCLibs.120.00_12.0.21005.1_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe.Appx
    • (c) Microsoft.3DBuilder_2015.209.2327.4143_neutral_~_8wekyb3d8bbwe.appxbundle
  5. Install items (a) and (b) by double-clicking each package. This installs the dependency packages.
  6. Then, run the .AppxBundle file to install it.

This installs the 3D Builder application.



Note: If you can’t install the packages interactively, install them using the PowerShell’s Add-AppxPackage command. See Fix: Can’t Install Appx, AppxBundle, and Msixbundle Files in Windows.
