This is no simple matter of just duplicating one layer. As you already discovered, this is all fake and in order to add more fake text you will have to create/ duplicate the entire hierarchy with all the associated nested comps and assemble them in yet another parent comp. Since they don't truly interact in 3D space, though, it may be useless. This technique is realyl only usable with words appearing sequentially and not interacting in any way...
awwww i see....Is there a faster, easier way to create 3D text? In photoshop maybe? or use Shatter Effect? Thanks for you advice!!
This post includes links to several alternative methods for creating extruded 3D text:
Toward the bottom, there's a link to a preset from Harry Frank that makes things easier.
