WPF - Shaxam

Download

Right click “Save as…”

With its powerful 3D capabilities WPF provides a leap forward in user experiences; but how do you create compelling 3D models and then make them available to your applications? In this Channel 9 video, Microsoft UK’s Richard Godfrey interviews the developers of Shaxam (www.shaxam.com) about their experiences and approach to building a Lightwave 3D to XAML convertor. Michael Stocking, Mark Hennessy-Barrett, Alex Young and Steve Kennett have all played a part in creating a friction-free way of building impressive WPF applications using complex 3D geometries such as the human heart shown in this clip...

    I swear, watching Channel 9 is like tuning in to some Foreign Tech Show. I rarely hear american-accents on these interviews Smiley

    Regardless, this is good stuff.
  • I dont mean this to be rude, but America is not the only country that is developing cutting edge software that we are all interested in! Its nice to see what people and teams are developing all around the world.

    Absolutely right.

  • Lightwave modeler has been my favorite modeler since WAY back in my Amiga days.
    It's just the most natural sculpting and building tool I've ever used.

    It's nice to see it being used in a different way.
  • ChadkChadk excuse me - do you has a flavor?
    Very nice interview.

    You're not being rude, and I agree with you. If you ask me, I think of some of the most amazing programmers I know of come from other countries (why, I dunno).

    Keep in mind my closing comment on my initial post - "Regardless, this is good stuff" was essentially what I said.

    I don't expect all great things to come from America, quite the contrary sometimes Smiley

    I've repeatedly jumped into Maya over the past 6 years. Each time I spend about 6 months of creative-construction, and then lose interest. I can't seem to mimic my passion for programming with my desire to do 3d Smiley The only 3d I've done in the last year was OpenGL...and that wasn't exactly enjoyable for me Smiley
  • Hi all,

    Just thought I'd leave a quick note - I've just uploaded the first public build of our free XAML exporter plugin for LightWave Modeler 9.  You'll find it at http://www.shaxam.com.  It does what you see in the video, with the exception of not needing a round trip to the web server.

    There are many more details in the README.txt that comes with the download - if you're using LightWave 9 and you're working with EID, you should check it out.

    Thanks,
