Because I no longer work with 3D Studio Max I don't have access to it anymore. Therefor I have to discontinue this project. The code will be available, but there won't be any future versions anymore. Unless someone has a spare license around ofcourse ;)

Thanks for the support!

Project Description

3D modeling is hard to do directly in Xaml. This is a set of scripts to export your models from 3D Studio Max directly to Xaml and ready to use in your WPF projects.

This project is in an very early alpha state. So everything will change and a lot of bugs will be found. But, feel free to give it a try.

Quick 'n short tutorial

Export from 3D Studio:
  • start 3D studio and open your model
  • click MAXScript menu -> run script...
  • browse to "main.ms" and run it
  • click export and give filename
  • select all and copy contents in memory
Running the example:
  • open the Wpf3dExample project in visual studio
  • paste the xaml in Data3dDictionary (overwriting everything!)
  • compile and run

Maxim posted a great and detailed tutorial on his blog on how to get started using the exporter:
