Welcome to the WPF3D team blog!

Soon we’ll be posting things like design tips, perf tricks, feature discussions, 3D basics, and more but until then check out these existing resources:

    I’m just starting a little research on  WPF/E.  This might not be the best place, but I’m going to ask anyway.

    I am particularly interested in finding a way to do relatively sophisticated 3D on the web – in something Flash-like that will have universal acceptance.

    Given what you are saying here, it seems that WPF might be the answer.

    The question I have is:

    What is the difference between WPF and WPF/E?  I assume that WPF/E is the download client like Flash that will work everywhere, but are there things missing from it?

    This leads to my more direct question:  Will WPF/E support 3D?  Can we develop 3D apps that run in browsers with WPF/E?

    For "what is WPF/E?" I’ll refer you to the official company line at http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/asp.net/bb187438.aspx. Their first CTP just came out if you haven’t grabbed it already.

    Yes, WPF/E is a subset of WPF’s functionality. It does not have 3D in V1.

    However, all is not lost because you can do browser 3D with WPF! You can just link to a XAML file containing 3D or create an XBAP.
