If you want to give VRML
a try, the Center for the Computation and Visualization of Geometric Structures, a National Science Foundation Science and Technology Center at the University of Minnesota, has a good site (http:hwww.

The Web3D Consortium today announced that it has entered into a cooperative licensing agreement with blaxxun interactive whereby the source code of blaxxun's VRML
browser will be made openly available from the Web3D Consortium under a Community Source license.
blaxxun is one of the strongest supporters of the Web3D Consortium, VRML
and the X3D project, as illustrated by their recent contribution of its browser source to the Consortium's Community Source program," said Neil Trevett, vice president of 3Dlabs and president of the Web3D Consortium.
X3D will culminate with the specification's incorporation into the next-generation open, non-proprietary VRML

The Web3D Consortium (formerly the VRML
Consortium) is a non-profit organization with a mandate to develop and promote open standards to enable 3D Web and broadcast applications, and to accelerate the worldwide demand for products based on these standards through the sponsorship of market and user education programs.
Users can publish models on the Web using VRML
or output to the Open Inventor(TM) toolkit (compact NURBS) file format.
VRPresenter and VRPlayer provide seamless integration of VRCharts-created graphs, as well as any VRML
files, into a PowerPoint presentation.
