            Hey! I noticed that there is a awesome new project on CodePlex (http://http://helixtoolkit.codeplex.com/) that provides a great replacement WPF3D navigation control. I've been happily using the HelixView instead of the trackball from the 3DTools project. It also has rendering exporters, primitives like spheres and boxes and more.
            Maybe it would make more sense for the Microsoft team to work on the low-level stuff like proper point/line support, transparency etc. which needs to integrate with the low-level MIL layer and can't be done by the community otherwise.

            That 3D is a consistent part of the WPF framework is awesome and should be a great platform for rich data visualization! Some suggestions going forward:
            - I would love to see first-class support for drawing points (point clouds) and lines (wireframe) in 3D space. The current workarounds like ScreenSpaceLines are poor. The underlying Direct3D API has point and line primitives.
            - Introduce a first-class 3D viewer WPF control with both object-inspector style view (like in 3D tools) and 3D maps type viewing (like Bing maps 3D). (With stylable controls and behaviour etc.)
            - Sort out the transparency / Z-order stuff.
            - Create and sustain a great CodePlex 3D data visualization project to generate some internal feedback (like the Dynamic Data Dispay). Get other teams like the scientific workbench research people and the robotics teams to try to use WPF3D for their visualization work. You need somebody to give you the kind of feedback WPF got from the Visual Studio integration.
            - We'd love to get to know the developers working on WPF3D now, and get some new blogs and samples going to show that there are still interest and development since the initial developers left MS.
