3D File Viewer for Website

Posted on 2013-11-19

Hello,

I'm looking to have a 3D file viewer on our website.  I do not want to upload the files to a 3rd party website and embed their viewer on ours.

Does anyone know:

1) Is there an open source 3D file viewer that I can install on our web server?
2) How easily I could build one using WebGL and/or Three.js (or any other programming tool)?

Akb, that was a nice viewer, but not web based.  Thanks for the suggestion.  Big Daddy, that link got me in the right direction, thanks!  I learned that creating a 3D viewer is rather easy.  The key is to learn Three.js.  I did not find a good resource on the Internet to learn Three.js simply, step-by-step.  So what I did was by a book off of Amazon: http://tinyurl.com/LearningThreeJS.

Now I'm practically a Three.js expert.  Thanks Big Daddy for getting me pointed in the right direction.

Three.js is simple for anyone who knows HTML and JavaScript.
