Hi. I've meen trying to dive into Helix Toolkit lately and it seems quite nice. But I realized, that I'm not able to programatically import TubeVisual3D into Viewport even though if I try to import some another Visual3D member (i.e. BillboardTextVisual3D), I have no problem with importing it.
Sample code should look like this:
TubeVisual3D tube = new TubeVisual3D(); tube.Path = new Point3DCollection(); tube.Path.Add(new Point3D(2, 3, 5)); tube.Path.Add(new Point3D(1, 4, -5)); tube.Path.Add(new Point3D(1,2,1)); tube.Diameter = 15; tube.ThetaDiv = 15; tube.Fill = Brushes.Navy; tube.IsPathClosed = true; //this adding into children does not work MainViewPort.Children.Add(tube); BillboardTextVisual3D bt = new BillboardTextVisual3D(); bt.Text = "RndText"; Height = 80; Width = 250; //this adding into children works MainViewPort.Children.Add(bt);
What's wrong with my approach?
edit: solved :)
It's impossible to crete tube points this way.

try to add the points in a Point3DCollection before setting the tube.Path property. Also, set the tube.Path property after all the other properties (for performance reasons).
