3d Shapes

I am working o a c# application which needs to draw Solid Blocks, Spheres
and Cylinders in 3D just like a CAD Program. Is there a library or a 3D
Engine that can help with this stuff?

I am currently looking at TrueVision3D.co m

Thanks.

Not a CAD package, but it might fit your needs:

Is DirectX SDK going to be enough? Will take a lot of time?
Thanks.

It is enough. With the provided samples I was able to understand how and
to draw basic primitives (boxes, spheres, and meshes) including lights
and textures very fast simply by experimenting with the code.

Reading this book: http://tinyurl.com/amota (about another 2 days)
enabled me to start to work on productional code.

Ok, but these are not solid blocks, DirectX is not well suited for this.
What you need is a technical analysis/drawing package, something like
Matlab's product offerings.

Microsoft Managed Direct3D is all you need, unless you need to create
irregularly-shaped objects, in which case you need some software for
creating meshes, like GMax (or the high-priced Maya or 3D Studio Max) to go
with it.

Hi, In VBA, you can select shapes and control them using Selection.ShapeRange. There is no equivalent in C#. See http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/vbaxl11/html/xlobjShapeRange1_HV05205006.asp In C#, the Selection(range) object does not have a ShapeRange property.
