Article in April 2007 MSDN Magazine

The April 2007 issue of MSDN Magazine is online now, so if you're one of those rare programmers who don't subscribe to the print edition, you can now check out my article on strategies for developing WPF 3D triangle meshes.

In each of my WPF articles for MSDN Magazine I've been trying to create at least one program that does something visually I've never seen before, and which causes me to giggle in delight. In this article, that would be the ImageOnCylinder program, which wraps a photo of my head around a cylinder and then animates the lenth of the cylinder and the radii of the cylinder ends. Except for one standalone XAML file, all the sample code is part of one Visual Studio solution named MeshGeometries, which contains a DLL project used by the other four programs.
