I have not really looked at Live Components before, assuming they were just an amuse-bouche ahead of releasing them as full blown replacements for DCs. But a recent email, and lack of progress on the release, encouraged me to take a look.
There seem to be quite a few models and some could be genuinely useful. It seems that they work differently to DCs in that you configure before you download. I wonder whether this gives a hint about their future? Maybe end users will never be able to create one from scratch. I guess that helps get rid of some of the big problems with 3DW (badly constructed models, large polycounts, etc).
I opened a couple, but I just get a blank screen as below. Could this be to do with using Safari as a browser?
