How to: Animate a 3-D Rotation Using StoryboardsThe following example shows how to make a 3D object rotate while it "wobbles" by animating the Angle and Axis properties of an AxisAngleRotation3D object. This AxisAngleRotation3D object specifies the rotation transform of the 3D object and so animating its properties creates the desire rotation effect. Within the Storyboard, DoubleAnimation is used to animate the Angle property while Vector3DAnimation is used to animate the Axis property.
