The main problem with u3d + TeX is the lack of tools to create u3d.
Maple and Mathematica do not create it (may be Maple 11?) and I could
find only some CAD tools. The Dice seems to be the singular popular

However quick look at meshlab does not show u3d as export/import
format. So unless there are any translators it is not very useful for
creation of pdf docs
