You should be able to add support for 3D annotations (e.g. similar to U3D/PRC annotations in PDF):
In this case you would use WebViewer annotations API to add support for custom 3D annotations:
- Your 3D model would be stored in a separate URL (eg. in the same folder as XOD)
- Use WebGL (  or similar) to load and display 3D model.
- Your 3D object would float on top of DocumentViewer similar to other annotations. the annotation could be moved with the same tools available for other annotation types.
-  For overview of Annotation API see:
- The HTML5 SDK comes with a sample of how to implement a very basic custom annotation that you can use as a starting point for your development.

Hi Madalina,

Unfortunately, the WebViewer and .xod format does not support viewing 3d content.
The conversion process from pdf to xod will try to flatten the 3d content.

I have a question about the PDFTron WebViewer. We would like to know if this viewer has any support for 3d Pdfs?
Or does the .xod format support a 3d display of a pdf?
