G3DViewer is a 3D file viewer for GTK+ supporting a variety of file types:

3D Studio (.3ds, .prj)
LightWave (.lw, .lwb, .lwo)
Alias Wavefront (.obj)
Impulse TurboSilver / Imagine (.iob)
AutoCAD (.dxf)
Quake II Models (.md2)
Neutral File Format (.nff)
3D Metafile (.3dmf, .3mf, .b3d)
Caligari TrueSpace Objects (.cob)
Quick3D Objects & Scenes (.q3o, q3s)
VRML 1.0 files (.wrl, .vrml) (new in 0.1.1, still buggy)
AC3D objects (.ac, .acc) (new in 0.1.99.1)

Here are some key features of "G3DViewer":
Wireframe mode
Texture support (new in 0.1.99.1)
Specular lighting (not really nice at the moment)
changeable background color

Requirements:
One of the following combinations:

GTK+ 2.x and GtkGLExt 1.0 (recommended)
GTK+ 2.x and GtkGLArea 2.0 (1.99)
GTK+ 1.2 and GtkGLArea 1.x

Support for Gtk+ 1.2 and for GtkGLArea will probably be removed in the next major version (0.3.0).
an OpenGL implementation, e.g. MesaGL: http://www.mesa3d.org
Hardware 3D acceleration is of course better and supported, but not necessary. At the moment I do most development on a slow machine without hardware acceleration.

What's New in 0.2.0 Stable Release:
This release contains all changes introduced in the preview releases (0.1.99.x).
Among bug fixes and cleanup this includes texture support and new and improved plugins.

What's New in 0.2.99.4 Development Release:
There were some files for the thumbnailer missing in the version 0.2.99.3 tarball.
