3D File Viewer for Website


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.
I'm not sure if this is what you are looking for:
