Please bottom-post. Start your reply here:

Hello, what exactly your aim is? Do you want to see the 3D graphics in 
Lyx and move around the image within LyX: AFAIK this is not possible 
with LyX as Lyx converts all the images to png for viewing.

If you are asking about inserting a 3D image/model into a PDF, this is 
smtg else. Tikz is not strong with 3D models and rendering. Currently 
the most approachable tool for this is Asymptode
