    If I am not wrong, you would have to enable the internal XFCE compositor. There is an option called "Show shadows under dock windows" which should give you that effect.

    Re: Xfce panel shadow

    Do you mean for "the panel" or just all windows?

    There is no shadow for the panel.

    Activating the xfce compositor (Settings > Window Manager Tweaks > Compositor > Tick) will give shadows and opacity effects to windows

    from command line:
    Code:
    xfconf-query --channel=xfwm4 --property=/general/use_compositing --set=true or false
    To access panel settings (with compositor on) Right click on panel > Panel > Panel Preferences > Display & Appearance Tabs

    maybe you are just wanting the panel itself to look 3D ? if so, here are some images (themes) you can apply to the panel:
