WPF will only work on Windows applications. If you would like to do 3D for web applications, you will need to use either the new HTML canvas tag or perhaps the upcoming SilverLight 5.

There are many other ways of creating 3D applications using Visual Studio 2010. XNA is a really good method, DirectX and also OpenGL.
