Importing 3D objects into Avalon from 3ds files

I have posted an article to The Code Project about importing 3D objects into Avalon from 3ds files.

Avalon 3d

You can load object from 3ds file directly into Avalon MeshGeometry3D object or export object as XAML text. There is also a simple 3d object viewer. The source can be downloaded from here.

There is also a simple sampe. The first part of the sample uses Load3ds class (from previous source) to load a simple button object and it shows it in tree different positions and colors. Download it from here.
