// Defines the camera used to view the 3D object. In order to view the 3D object, 
// the camera must be positioned and pointed such that the object is within view  
// of the camera.
PerspectiveCamera myPCamera = new PerspectiveCamera();

// Specify where in the 3D scene the camera is.
myPCamera.Position = new Point3D(0, 0, 2);

// Specify the direction that the camera is pointing.
myPCamera.LookDirection = new Vector3D(0, 0, -1);

// Define camera's horizontal field of view in degrees.
myPCamera.FieldOfView = 60;

// Asign the camera to the viewport
myViewport3D.Camera = myPCamera;
