Boss asked me to create a spinnable image in a website, but . . .

Main Question or Discussion Point

. . . I'm not programmer, although I do have a basic knowledge of programming and have passed one college course in it.

But this could be a foot in the door for me to become useful at something my company might want to expand into in the future.

Here is what I am being asked to do. I created this 3d model for my job in Sketchup, then screencasted rotating it through different angles so that various of our design team could get a good visual of an underground communication wire system that they have to be aware of. My boss asked me kind of off-the-cuff "hey could you put this in a webpage we could visit and manually rotate in all spherical directions?"

Although this particular project was finished in October my boss still wants me to learn how to do this.

In this particular post I am not really asking "how" but rather would like to be pointed in the best direction for creating a user/visitor rotatable object in a website.

NOTE: I am willing and intending to learn a good dose of programming if required.

Here is the youtube video of the MP4 that I will be using.

This could be done easily using a library like three.js

Hello David,

Posting this for posterity. Turns out there is a native very good way to do this in Sketchup. I feel dumb for not looking into this up front.

Here is my rotatable 3d model in 3d Warehouse: click on eyeball button then maximize using full-screen icon at bottom left of model window. Then begin rotating the model.

Here is a youtube video of how to upload a 3d Sketchup model into a webpage and rotate it:
