    A 3D Program for my 3D models...?

    I want to make a program so that othe rpeople can look at my 3D models in a "3D world". I was reading about 3D rotating or something like that and I wanted to know if I could have an object in the middle and people could use arrow keys to look at different angles or basicly rotate around it. I know the objects woudl need to be a certain format and I can do that later.

    I don't much c++ at all. And I just want to do this. So please help me as much as you can.

    Thanks

    Yes you can. In addition to learning basic C++, you're also going to need a graphics API (which just gives you all the functions you need to display graphics). At the top of this board is a sticky with a list of different freeware programs - there are some good 3D ones in there. As far as a graphics API, OpenGL is very popular for 3d Graphics, but I've only ever used SDL, so ask around a bit at the gaming board to decide what is really best.

    well this didn't help much. All I want to do is creat a simple program to show my models. But the openGL doesn't work. Notin works with dev-c++. It always has an error and the simpliest of errors will not let it compile. Oh well I will just make sd models till someone amkes a program to show off the models someday.

    Thanks anyways.

    Less than an hour ago you say you don't know much C++, and now you think one of the most popular compilers in the world does not work with one of the most popular Graphics APIs, having barely learned the names of these items? Waiting for someone else to do it is a good idea in your case. At least you won't have to wait long. Hundreds of them just got made. They're all being marketed by a company called Google. You better hurry though. They're in a TradeMark dispute.

    edit: Open Dev-C++, Go to File->New Project..., and click on the "Graphics" tab. Maybe that'll give you a clue.

    Well yes it would be nice if someone accauly bade it but I don't acpect someone to brake there back for me. I accauly know nothing about c++ I only know about varaibles because of game maker.

    And the dev-c++ and garphics thing I can't even figure out. I don't see no garphics tab.

    And your funny.

    Multimedia tab is what it's called now.
    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah

    Allow me to suggest abandoning all hope of doing what you want to do.

    Thanks for the positive rep on that lat post by the way. The mods are not messing with your posts. I am silly is inserted every time you choose to be rude about the people who voluntarily give you help.
