Photoshop: 3D functions not working, they are grayed out

I am having problems with the 3D functions not working, they are grayed out in Photoshop CC 2018 9subscription). I also have CC 2015 and CC2015.5 and all three the 3D options are grayed out and not working. The odd thing is I remember using the 3D functions sometime last year, I'm not a heavy user I only use the 3d function to extrude text, however, I have a project to do and none of the three photoshop applications will allow me to use the 3D options.

It sounds like your video card might not make the cut. Have you checked Preferences > Performance > Graphic Processor Settings to see if Photoshop recognizes that Use Graphics Processor is enabled?
