Not in all cases, but in many. From my experience with visualization
software, I guess the problem is that developers are so happy to
be able to render polygons that they easily forget about boring stuff
like text. If your object is not too complex you might consider
to use a Java applet to display it. JavaView 
http://www-sfb288.math.tu-berlin.de/vgp/javaview/index.html
or LiveGraphics3D 
http://wwwvis.informatik.uni-stuttgart.de/~kraus/LiveGraphics3D/
are both able to display Mathematica graphics with axes and labels.
(Well, I am not so sure about what JavaView is able to do exactly, 
but LiveGraphics3D does support axes rather well.)
