Default 3D browser recommendation

I'm looking for a decent 3D browser (IE plugin and/or standalone).

Working on a product design and wish to share with others about an hour away. So I've been exporting from AC3D to VRML 2 and publishing the WRL file on my website for others to view. I'm having them install the CORTONA browser from parallelgraphics. They are having a difficult time using CORTONA.

Ultimately we want to burn a CD to send to several manufacturers. They are not sophisticated enough for CAM so that's not an issue. They just need a high quality 3D image they can play with.

The other alternative could be COSMO Player. But I personally prefer Cortona.

Here are some links to well known browsers.

Hope this helps,

I appreciate the input.

I found a workaround for CARTONA. The problem is non-technical people can't grasp the default navigational method. Setting the skin to CAD-like seems to be working the way they expect.

It's all in the point of view or viewpoint!

Also checked out an excellent site for VRML (Bob Crispen's VRMLworks) which I got to via your link.

The best one I've found: Cult3d
Nokia's phone introduction is based on it. Works very fast under NN, Mozilla and IE - just 1 small plugin needed. You can find a few impressive presentations at www.cult3d.com
The minus of it is the symbolical number of recoignised filetypes (there are only 3 exporters available: for Maya, Plasma and 3DS) and lack of 'third party' converters. Andy, maybe plugin for export, before other will put it into their modelers?
I've seen also Java3d in action (suspends my Opera) and jvue (lot of 3d models recoignised - including typhical CAD files, but slow, takes 300MB on HDD and works as 'client-server')
