Jumpstart 3D creation from the 3D panel
In Photoshop CS5 Extended, it's easy to get started with 3D creation from the 3D panel (Window>3D). Use Repouss© on text layers, masks, selections, or paths to extrude them to real 3D geometries. Take layers and wrap them around 3D shapes and even open 3D models from third-party content providers directly as a Photoshop 3D layer.
