Question Exporting 3D surfaces to Microsoft or PDF

tbraun84 is on a distinguished road
Has anyone on this forum found a way to embed interactive 3d plots to Microsoft Word/PowerPoint or LaTeX (via Movie15 and/or Media9 pacakges) recognized formats?
I am aware that I can export a surface as STL, but I am wondering about being able to export the geometry wireframe and then maybe either colored contour plot slices or monochrome streamlines/vectors.
This would greatly enhance the value of plots in reports that go to management or other non-CFD users. The option doesn't appear to be available right out of Ensight, but the possibilities with Python libraries and various other software - open source and commercial - is limitless.

The Microsoft 3D model formats are: .fbx, .obj, .3mf, .ply, .stl, and .glb. The LaTeX 3D model formats are: .prc and .u3d.
