Ardahan 3 years ago in Question • updated 3 years ago 5

I'am reading an STL file in my WPF c# application. I want to store it to database. All database connections are done but I don't know how to store 3d model in database. What kind of converting needed for this purpose? And later similarly I want to get that information from database to turn it 3d models.Is there any basic function for STL converting to binaries then merging it again?

How to change default world coordinates

Michael Powell 4 years ago in Question • updated 4 years ago 1
There's probably a simple way to do this, but how do I change the world coordinates? That is, when a default HelixViewport3D appears, and I include the gridlines, I want to extend this plane from its defaults.

Hello there,

Thank you for your nice toolkit. I would like to know how to change the camera view to a standard view, such as top view, in code? Simply, I need a piece of code to do exactly what is happening by clicking on a side of the ViewCube.

Earth Scale

Integratron 3 years ago in Question 0

Hi, I'm trying to create an environment on the scale of earth, i.e. the main object is a map of earth and is 40,000,000 units wide, and I have actual scale buildings only 100 units long. It actually seems to work mostly ok but when I zoom in on the buildings, I get odd clipping effects that appear and disappear while I'm panning or orbiting around the buildings. Any ideas on how best to make this display reliably?
