pyFormex now has a WebGL exporter
     posted by bverheg, Wed 13 Mar 2013 05:29:01 PM UTC - 0 replies

pyFormex can now directly export (most of) your current scene to a WebGL web page that makes your 3D scene viewable from a WebGL
enabled browser (Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Safari).

You can even manipulate the model with your mouse: rotate, move, zoom. And you get some GUI elements where you can change attributes like color, transparency, visibility.

Check the example(s) at (if you have a conforming browser).
