How to embed 3D models into PDF using JavaScript?

I want to embed 3D models into the same field(3D annotation), wich means the model tree can display a series of meshes. I have read the Sdk document four days. But I can't find the API to creat a 3D annotation or embed a series of 3D meshes into PDF.

Could anyone know it? I need your help!!

I don't believe a script can do that, although I'm not too familiar with Acrobat's 3D functionalities, but from the documentation of the JS API it doesn't seem it can add a 3DAnnot object, only access an existing one.

I read the sdk document as well.

You couldn't find the API to embed a series of 3D meshes into the pDF because there is no API that can do that.

The only thing is that you can access the already existing but cannot create one.

Thanks for your reply!!! That’s not a good news. Do you know if there are other ways that can embed a series of 3D meshes in a same field? I want to use the buttons to control the render modes of different parts.

Sorry, I don't. PDF 3D scripting is a very niche market.
