3d mathematics / geoemtric beginners tutorial

Post by DesignDevil » 19 Aug 2009, 16:13

Hi together. I'm searching for good and easy to understand tutorials about 3d mathematics and geometry.

Background: i'm working on a translation of the TS6.6 SDK into FreeBasic. There are a lot of functions in the SDK (i.e tsxTransformVecs3f) where i have absolutly no idea for what they are or what they do.

What i need would be a tutorial about vectors, axes, matrix, transformations ... and all this stuff which is needed to understand the trueSpace internals - or the 3D himself ;).
I still use TrueSpace 6.6

DD,

3DBuzz has some 3D math videos:
