Website designers and those of you interested in viewing and debugging web pages in 3D may be interested in a tool updated by Microsoft in the form of the aptly named 3D View tool.

You can’t use the element picker to select them in the page, they’re just not reachable. Using right-click > inspect is also not an option in this case, and using the Elements panel to find them may be difficult.”
