Direct3D is a set of interfaces and functions that allow a Windows application to talk to the video card(s) in a machine. Only the most basic 2D graphics functions are handled by Direct3D. There are some 2D graphics libraries, such as the GDI, that can do things like draw rounded rectangles, ellipses, lines, thick lines, n-sided polygons, and so forth. Direct3D cannot do any of this. Any raster operations need to be developed by you, the game programmer. What Direct3D does do is provide a transparent layer of communication with the hardware on the user's machine.
