ModelUIElement3D Class

Renders a 3-D model that supports input, focus, and events.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Media.Media3D
Assembly:  PresentationCore (in PresentationCore.dll)

<ContentPropertyAttribute("Model")> _
Public NotInheritable Class ModelUIElement3D _
	Inherits UIElement3D
Dim instance As ModelUIElement3D

ModelUIElement3D is introduced in the .NET Framework version 3.5. For more information, see .NET Framework 3.5 Architecture.

The following example shows how to create two cubes using the ModelUIElement3D class:

        <PerspectiveCamera Position="8,3,0" LookDirection="-8,-3,0" />

    <!-- The container has the two cubes as its children -->
    <ContainerUIElement3D MouseDown="ContainerMouseDown">
                    <AxisAngleRotation3D x:Name="containerRotation" Axis="0, 1, 0" Angle="0" />

        <!-- Cube 1 -->
        <ModelUIElement3D MouseDown="Cube1MouseDown">
                <TranslateTransform3D OffsetZ="1.5" />

                <GeometryModel3D Geometry="{StaticResource CubeMesh}">
                        <DiffuseMaterial x:Name="cube1Material" Brush="Blue" />

        <!-- Cube 2 -->
        <ModelUIElement3D MouseDown="Cube2MouseDown">
                <TranslateTransform3D OffsetZ="-1.5" />

                <GeometryModel3D Geometry="{StaticResource CubeMesh}">
                        <DiffuseMaterial x:Name="cube2Material" Brush="Green" />

    <!-- Lights -->
            <PointLight Color="White" Position="3, 10, 4" />

The cubes respond to the mouse down event through the following event handlers:
