Duplicating and placing 3D models in XNA

                                      In this post I'm going to talk about duplicating 3d models several times using for loop. To duplicate 3d models, you have to import a 3d  model to visual studio xna gaming platform. After importing the model you have to do the basic coding of the model and the camera which I explained in my previous post.

How to import a 3D object from Maya or 3DMax to XNA

                             First, export the object in FBX file format in Maya or 3DMax. Create a new visual studio project. Then add the fbx file to your visual studio project content folder. You can use add->existing item or just copy and paste the file. Then add a new variable to render this model.
