    I just purchased your book on Amazon, should get here shortly. It’s great to have another book on 3D programming with WPF, I have Charles Petzold’s book “3D Programming for Windows” as well. Although I have a graduate in Comp Science, I never got into 3D stuff, basically staying with OS design and low level programming. However, a project my employer started me on using the MPU-9250 has changed much of this – basically I have to project a 3D object’s gyro movements via a USB link to a computer. As well, I have started into 3D MAX to further my development in this field, proving an old tiger might be able to change stripes!

      Hi John,

      I hope you enjoy the book! Let me know if you have questions as you work through it. Or if you create any cool pictures, please post them.= so everyone else can see! And, of course, post a review on Amazon if you have a chance.

    Hi Rod,
    I was wondering if your WPF 3D book is available in an electronic version such as PDF or Kindle. If not, is this something that you are considering.
    This is my first time on your site and all of your work looks intriguing.
    Thank you.

    I got the book in the weekend. Literally, I could not drop it from my hand. It is a superb book. Your helper functions and their algorithms are superb. I wish I could think of them earlier. I am developing a scientific (engineering) application which requires some 3D visualizations and I was in the process of testing Helix 3d wpf toolkit which works. But your approach is going to get rid of a lot of overhead and will give me a lot more flexibility to design my program.

    I am now diving into the material in the book. I will post any comments or suggestions as I go along. My initial intuition tells me the perhaps I can suggest alternative triangulation algorithms using Delaunay triangulation or Voronoi diagrams. I will let you know when I get there.

    Thank you again for writing a beautiful book.

      Hi Ikonuk,

      Thanks for the kind words. Post a review when you have a chance!

      I thought about making Delaunay triangulations but decided that it was too much work. There are also some related topics such as making three-dimensional splines to define surfaces. I decided not to include those, mostly to save space and to focus on the graphics and not spend as much time on those algorithms.

      If you build something that you think others might find useful, feel free to post a link in the comments.
