There are many ways to create 3D in Flash. You can either do it directly in Flash or through use of 3rd party software. Doing it directly in Flash can be very meticulous and frustrating. 3rd party tools are much easier in comparison, but they are also very pricy. Fortunately, there is an answer for those who only need simple 3D, like a logo or rotating cube, etc.
Mircosoft Word is a ubiquitous and powerful 3D generator for simple shapes and text. It doesn't export in SWF, but the graphics it creates can be traced into Flash very quickly.
For the purposes of this tutorial, I used Word 2000. Earlier versions of Word and Microsoft Powerpoint and Excel will work fine.
