Dubbed Smithsonian X 3D, the collection not only includes a browser-based 3D viewer that lets you get up close with the objects it's already scanned -- everything from fossils to historical artifacts like the Wright Flyer -- but also lets users download the necessary files to print an actual model on your own 3D printer at home.

cool.

I was more impressed by the 3d viewer engine from autodesk that showcases the models, amazing to view rotate,zoom, pan etc the 3d models in full screen that smooth, and changing materials,lights etc.
working in chrome browser without any installation, havenīt checked firefox.

I didnīt find the historical big bang model, with that I could rule:)
