  • Overview

    Telerik WPF 3D Chart control is an addition to the RadChartView set and is the first control in it to visualize data in a three dimensional manner. The chart uses the WPF API for 3D rendering, so you don’t need to worry about including third party libraries.

  • DataBinding

    The control features the well-known WPF data binding mechanism via ItemSource and defining the properties in it to be utilized for the different data points in the chart. In addition, there is a convenient dynamic data binding mechanism that will automatically create series based on the data in the hierarchical data source (collections of collections).

  • Data Sampling

    The data sampling functionality is very useful when working with large data sets, as the component engine will automatically execute data sampling on the provided data set, to reduce the number of points that the chart needs to render, without losing valuable information. 


  • Series Types

    There are three built-in series in the 3D chart—surface series, point series, and bar series (a.k.a. Manhattan chart).

    • Point Series – allows for point size selection
    • Surface series – exposes advanced features such as different color modes and custom triangulation abilities.
    • Bar Series - ability to specify the display direction of the bars
    • Line Series - visualizes three dimensional data represented by a line shape

  • Axes

    The 3D space in the RadCartesianChart3D control is defined by three axes, one for each dimension – X, Y and Z.

    Two axis types that can be used with the 3D chart:

    • Numeric
    • Categorical

  • Camera behavior

    The chart allows you to control the camera position from where the scene is observed. You can rotate the camera around the chart and change its distance, by moving it towards or away from the center. This creates the illusion that the chart is being spun and zoomed in and out.
