Edit: I overreacted from sampling a PDF in which I had failed to check the 3D box. Disregard this entire post.

Could be security setting in Reader.
I made 3D PDF from an assembly in 2019 SP3 which crash Adobe Reader DC and Acrobat XI Pro.
So I create one with just a part.
Get this when open the file:
Select Trust this always in Option.
Then click in the screen to activate 3D.
Did someone turned off the Toolbar?
Still I was able to rotate with mouse without toolbar.
Checked the option: Save as 3D PDF?
Also attached 3D PDF.
Using up to date Adobe Reader DC.
Crashing w assemblies, a known former issue.
I wrote a post about exporting a parasolid, and creating 3D PDF from that. I haven't tried this today.
Security, a known former issue.
To enable 3D content permanently:
Go to Edit > Preferences > 3D & Multimedia and then select the Enable playing 3D content checkbox.
Or, allow each file as you open it.
I opened some past projects, and those 3D PDF's still work fine. I was only testing the one file on the current project being reviewed. I have just recreated that file as a 3D PDF, and it works just fine as expected. Although creating 3D PDF's has become routine, I must have failed to check the 3D check box when creating that file.
UGH, this was my own mistake made in haste. I am sorry for being so alarmist. I was greatly alarmed.
To make you feel a bit better.
Last week, I send out an email to customer and management saying customer drawing was incorrect.
I sent another one saying I was wrong an hour later.
