Becoming “a sexier WPF programmer” with WPF3D

May 24, 2007

Charles Petzold announced that his "3D Programming for Windows" is available for pre-order from Amazon.  In his announcement he promises:

  • Yes, it will have plenty of pictures. Yes, it will be mostly XAML except when code is required. Yes, it will help make you a sexier WPF programmer.

Sounds great!

Other WPF3D Book Content

Adam Nathan ("WPF Unleashed" author and Microsoft Popfly developer) had Daniel Lehenbauer (dev for much of WPF 3d in v3) write the chapter in "WPF Unleashed" about 3d.

My guess is that most people interested in using 3d for data visualization or for UI interaction, should read both Petzold’s 3D book and Lehenbauer’s 3D chapter.  Would love to hear people’s recommendations.

Great example of WPF3D for Data Vizualization for an upcoming update to Microsoft Dynamics

I recently did a summary of Mix07 session (XBD05 – Booyah! Designing and Developing Line-of-Business Applications that SIZZLE) that was done on the use of WPF & WPF3D in an upcoming version of Microsoft Dynamics.  You’ve got to watch this video if you have information that you’d like to represent visually and give your user power to change the situation.

I haven’t gone deep on WPF3D yet

Personally, I have yet to dive deep in 3d, but I’ve dabbled into:

  • the data structure for 3d from API reviews of cameras, models, etc…
  • how we represent some 3d concepts in Xaml
  • for my talk @ PDC 2005, I took the Healthcare app and was tweaking the page flip animation
