I downloaded Sun's Java 3D tutorial.

I am trying to follow along in Chapter 1, but I don't know how... lol

I mean I really don't know how? Am I supposed to type the 'code' into an IDE as I move along the chapter? I really don't understand it...

Help please...

Thanks

I wish I could help but I'm not sure that I understand your question! Are you familiar with the Java programming language? If so then you should be able to take what you want/need from the tutorial examples - firstly, just try to set up a simple scene with a ColorCube. Although, personally, I found that confusing too! I learnt most of what I know from a book by Andrew Davison entitled 'Killer Game Programming In Java' which has quite a few chapters on Java3D - I highly recommend it.
