New Lab Posted: Creating 3D Content with Windows Presentation Foundation


I just posted a new lab for learning how to use 3D in WPF.  This is a great lab that I would highly recommend if you are learning WPF 3D. It shows how to do dynamic animation of 3D content as well as how to do 2D on 3D using the 3DTools.

    OK, I have created a 3D in WPF… Now what am I supposed to do with it? Is there a way to export it as a movie, like .avi file?

    To o3APA3A: WPF3D is about interactivity, not pre-rendered.  If you want to do pre-rendered 3D, I’d go with a 3D tool designed for that.  WPF 3D is about integrating your 3D into an application at runtime.

  4. What’ the big deal on the WPF library? All the cool people are doing it, and peer pressure is making

    Great stuff Karsten.  I’ll be giving a talk about 3D construction basics in WPF at the end of April and will definitely reference this code lab.  

    On a side note – it’s nice to see how far the 3D Tools have come along.  I remember back in the day when you had to put a few transforms in your viewport to get the trackball to work 🙂
