Ben Rollason creator of past scripts for After Effects such as 3D Bevel and Sky Dome recently released a new 3D Extruder Script for After Effects which creates a now standard hack of “sudo” 3D objects in After Effects by stacking layers for the appearance of 3D. Check out the 3D Extruder Script for After Effects here.

“3D Extruder is a script that makes light work of creating high-quality 3D extrusions in After Effects, using the time-honored method of stacking 2.5D layers (all automatically of course). The benefit of this is your 3D extrusions are part of your real After Effects 3D space so they interact properly with other 3D layers.”
