it's kind of problem because that the main function in MAX for right click is selection.
but you can write MAXscript and add it to right click menu.

if you need to make your scene interactive there is special program for this.
the program alow you to rotate your model for view ,add help windows and more.
you can use macromedia director for this.

other good idea is create PDF doc with acrobat 7.
this alow you to view 3d model inside  acrobat reader. (ver 7 and above)
