Issue

It is not currently possible to illustrate chemical files in wiki pages without cumbersome processes (e.g. create externally, change to image and upload).

Background

This seems to be a useful feature according to these:

Proposed solution

Evaluate existing libraries that extend three.js

Use existing loader

Evaluate existing implementation in existing extension (Extension:PDBHandler).

Demo:

https://threejs.org/examples/css3d_molecules.html

Extension:PDBhandler in action:

Notes: currently pdbhandler seems to work in file pages and article pages, so it actually works better than extension:3d for now, probably because on average they are likely to be smaller than a normal 3d file.
