To display 3D content in real-time we use WebGL, which is a standard in most modern browsers.
You can check if your browser is compatible on http://get.webgl.org/
For more technical details about WebGL on your machine, see http://webglreport.com/

If you run into problems, make sure your graphics driver and browser are up-to-date. If that doesn’t help, try one of the other browsers listed above. http://get.webgl.org/ is a good place to start troubleshooting.
Sometimes, your browser may disable WebGL based on your GPU. If you are using a compatible browser, but you see an incompatible warning or the viewer performs very badly, try forcing the browser to use your GPU:
- In Chrome, go to chrome://flags/#ignore-gpu-blacklist and enable the Override software rendering list flag.
- In Firefox, go to about:config and enable webgl.force-enabled.
