JavaFX or Java3D

I need to write a desktop application (swing) including 3D charts, animations and many more 3D graphical features.

What should I use for this? Java3D or JavaFX?

Please advice?

Without having used either of the two extensively, I'd try to prototype the difficult parts of your UI in both technologies (or try to find samples where people have got features working). You might quickly find that one or the other falls short in some area.
