     Learn how to program in 3D using only Visual Basic - no OpenGL or DirectX. The major update in version 4 is the synchronization of MIDI music (2001 - A Space Odyssey) and 3D animation. I also wanted to experiment with some opening credits at the beginning. You can press the ESC key to skip the animation. The other major change is the various Camera variables have been cleaned up and placed into their own data type: 'mdr3DCamera'. You might also notice that I've created some additional data types (ie. mdr3DObject, mdrPolyhedron & mdrVertex). This is in anticipation of getting rid of the dots, and creating some lines drawings... should be exciting! Thanks go to everyone that has voted for my previous versions (look them up, they are easier than this one). The votes have helped me continue to improve this 3D application.

Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
