or given a axis and rotate a object "angle" how to know 3 direction of a object? vector3 R = Funcion (axis,angle);

Get the rotation matrix, and pull out the 3 rows (direct3d) or columns (opengl) as vectors.. these vectors are your objects x,y and z axis.

Do you mean this?

D3DXMATRIX m;
D3DXQUATERNION q;
D3DXMatrixRotationQuaternion( &m, &q );

m_x = D3DXVECTOR3( m(0,0), m(0,1), m(0,2) );
m_y = D3DXVECTOR3( m(1,0), m(1,1), m(1,2) );
m_z = D3DXVECTOR3( m(2,0), m(2,1), m(2,2) );
