Hi
I have got myself Visual Studio 2012. It comes with expression Blend. I am trying to program Windows Presentation Foundation applications.
Anyway, i have no experience with 3d graphics before.
I am looking to do simple things with 3d modeling. For example, i'd like to create a company logo in 3d that rotates slowly in a window in WPF (logo is a crest like shape with 3d text in front of it).
Can these shapes be created in blend or do i need another program?
If so, what programs are out there you'd recommend? Costs? etc.
Regards
Conor

Humm , sounds fun ...
) I would consider making your base "3-d" image in GIMP ( free ) http://www.gimp.org/
2) Rotate the image using code similar to the example here:

It would be interesting to know how you work it out , please post back your final solution.
Thanks,
Keith

I have used Gimp before. I didn't know this could be done in it.
Ok, thanks man!
