Draw spheres using WPF and C#
This example shows how you can draw spheres in a 3D WPF program. The following code shows the AddSphere method, which adds a sphere to a MeshGeometry3D. It’s kind of long, but the ideas (which I’ll explain shortly) aren’t too … Continue reading

Perform hit testing in a 3D program that uses WPF, XAML, and C#
Many threedimensional programs need to perform hit testing to determine when the user clicks on something. This example draws two interlocked tetrahedrons inside a cage. When you click on one of the objects, the program displays information about the object … Continue reading
