I need to turn the 2d image into the 3d image



Ive tried masking each section and rotating it in 3d but im finding it very difficult to make sure each section is on the correct axis and actually lining up.

It's not that tough. I'll assume you know how to do the blue & yellow stuff.

Then you precompose it. You duplicate the precomp until you have one for each segment, and mask appropriately. Make the layers 3D and move the anchor points horizontally until they're at the proper vertical edge. Then it's a matter of adding or subtracting the y orientation and repositioning on the x axis.

Yeah, it's not automatic, and it takes a little time, but you can do it.

You adjust the camera to get the proper sngle on it.

Think of it as "L" shapes instead of stripes. This way you can create a series of square pre-comps with the L shapes inside and position them in a zig zag (as seen from the top) and rotate the L shapes within the pre-comps to match the desired design.
You can also use the following plugin to arrange the layers automatically on a path:

Have you tried Polyline? It basically sets this kind of thing up for you in a snap. It's by Motion Botique and a pretty powerful little tool.
