Html – 3D models on HTML page


I have 3D CAD model that I want to show on a web page. I'd like to show it in a form like a <img> tag (e.g. inline with everything else rather than as a separate page) and I want the visitor to be able to rotate the model to view it from different perspectives.

What options do I have?

Things I'm thinking of/looking at

  • VRML
  • 3DXML
  • flash
  • PDF has something that works but it doesn't embed like I want
  • 3DMLW (Seems very slow)
  • Universal 3D (supported by Adobe Reader)

The model is not very complex so perf is not a major concern.
