In Visual Studio 2017 when you select 3D object, some of the properties do not show up in the properties windows, especially transforms.
This means it makes it very difficult to do storyboard animations.
Blend for Visual Studio 2013 has support for 3D transforms and animations. After VS Blend 2013 the support for 3D was dropped. :(
Does not seem to work with helix toolkit, so I go back to the regular viewport3D.
