3D products, initially modeled and than exported (.obj) from the Mac modeling software - Strata Design CX, have been re-edit in Blender (Mac) and exported (with Blend4Web - standalone Blender add-on) as a single, self-contained HTML5 file, in which, the data, the web player and the engine itself are packed.
Strata Design 3D CX is a professional-level 3D modeling and animation software for Mac. Blender is an open-source 3D graphics software typically used for creating animated films, visual effects, 3D printed models, interactive 3D applications and video games. Blend4Web is an open source framework for creating and displaying interactive 3D computer graphics in web browsers. Content rendering relies on WebGL or WebVR without the use of plug-ins.

The resulting HTML file (which can be embedded or downloaded as any web page) was opened locally (offline + full screen) as shown below on a touch-screen monitor.

On the other hand, for online and multi-platform uses, Sketchfab provides a viewer based on the WebGL and WebVR technologies that allow to display 3D models on the web, to be viewed on any mobile browser, desktop browser or Virtual Reality headset.
