The WPF 3D Area Charts are popular for showing volume changes over a period of time. This chart looks like the 3D line chart that contains space between the line and the X-axis, filled with color. The only difference between 3D and 2D area chart is its appearance. The 3D area series has a visual third-dimension axis which holds no additional information. It supports rotation and selection.

Code example

Easily get started with the WPF 3D Area Chart using a few simple lines of C# code example as demonstrated below,

<Window x:Class="ChartExample.MainWindow"
        Title="WPF 3D Area Chart" Height="450" Width="700">
  <!--Setting DataContext-->

    <StackPanel HorizontalAlignment="Center"   VerticalAlignment="Center">

            Height="400" Width="400" Depth="500"

            <!--  Initialize the horizontal axis for the WPF 3D Chart  -->
                <chart:CategoryAxis3D />

             <!--  Initialize the vertical axis for the WPF 3D Chart  -->
                <chart:NumericalAxis3D />

            <!--  Adding 3D Area Series to the WPF 3D Chart  -->
                ItemsSource="{Binding CategoricalDatas}"
public class BarChart3DModel 
        public string Year { get; set; }

        public double Plastic { get; set; }

        public double Metal { get; set; }

        public BarChart3DModel(double metal, double plastic, string year)
            Plastic = plastic;
            Year = year;
            Metal = metal;

    public class Chart3DViewModel
        public Chart3DViewModel()
            CategoricalDatas = new ObservableCollection<BarChart3DModel>();

            CategoricalDatas.Add(new BarChart3DModel(7, 5, "2008"));
            CategoricalDatas.Add(new BarChart3DModel(13, 10, "2009"));
            CategoricalDatas.Add(new BarChart3DModel(15, 12, "2010"));
            CategoricalDatas.Add(new BarChart3DModel(21, 20, "2011"));
            CategoricalDatas.Add(new BarChart3DModel(25, 23, "2012"));

        public ObservableCollection<BarChart3DModel> CategoricalDatas
