Well. I've never programmed with DirectX but wan to know a simple way to show a 3d vie and rotate it and add vertices and faces. Stuff like that. I've decided to make a model editor. I just need to do simple stuff like resinzing and moving. Any help would be apreciated.

Well, I take it that you're not completely new to VB. If you are, I suggest finding a good book and then going from there, leave DirectX till much later.
If you are ready to head down the slippery path od DirectX, here are a few links to collections of good tutorials:
DirectX 4 VB (http://18.104.22.168//index.asp)
Lucky's VB Gaming (http://www.rookscape.com/vbgaming/tutorials.php)
Yahoo! search (http://google.yahoo.com/bin/query?p=directx+vb&hc=0&hs=1) (took me 10 seconds) :p

Yea I'm not new to VB.
I'm a bit new to VB5. Before that all i had was VB2 and i did a lot with that. Then i upgraded VB3!! That meant i could do "double click" stuff
i never though of looking at msft's site for stuff. hehe.

Or an alternative would be to buy a book as they usually come with the SDK on a CD. A quicker faster way to get it.
