API contract
Windows.Foundation.UniversalApiContract (introduced v5)


This example places a 3D element on the center of the map.

map3dSphereStreamReference = RandomAccessStreamReference.CreateFromUri
   (new Uri("ms-appx:///Assets/trainengine.3mf"));    

 var myModel = await MapModel3D.CreateFrom3MFAsync(map3dSphereStreamReference,

 var my3DElement = new MapElement3D();
 my3DElement.Location = myMap.Center;
 my3DElement.Model = myModel;

 var myLayer = new MapElementsLayer();



To display the 3D object on a map control, add the MapElement3D to the MapElements collection of a MapElementsLayer. Then, add the MapElementsLayer to the Layers collection of the map.


MapElement3D() MapElement3D() MapElement3D() MapElement3D()

Creates a MapElement3D instance.


Dispatcher Dispatcher Dispatcher Dispatcher

Gets the CoreDispatcher that this object is associated with. The CoreDispatcher represents a facility that can access the DependencyObject on the UI thread even if the code is initiated by a non-UI thread.
