Intro To 3D
XNA 4 is very different than XNA 3.1 http://www.nelxon.com/blog/xna-3-1-to-xna-4-0-cheatsheet/
Vectors : Vector3 x , y , z
Right handed vs Left Handed Coordinate Systems RHCS and LHSC
Matrices: A matrix is a class that is used to transform vectors.
High Level Shader Language
HLSL pathway to Hardware.
World: Matrix that holds all Vertices send to video card
View: frustum of the camera view; near and far clipping plane
Projection: Flat 2D plane that is interpolated from the 3D View
The video card is handed a list of vertices. The vertices are then places in the world. The View is used to see the world and the projection is the actual view surface.
- Vertex Buffer :Vertex buffer is a list of vertices that are used to make one of the XNA privative shapes.

Modified How To: Draw Points, Lines, and Other 3D Primitives - source
Matrices can be multiplied together to combine the effects to their translation. The order in which you combine them does matter.
- I Identity
- S Scale
- R Rotate
- T Translate
- O Orbit

Create a simple 3D Vertex buffer that draws some kind of simple object. You can use points, Triangles, or lines, but no meshes.
