When I create a 3D text based of my written text in Adobe Afterr Effects (Element 3D plug-in) I never get a "streight" 3D word. Every time when I create a new one, my created 3D text seems to be is very different position.

See this example first:

My original text is upper left, my Element 3D text is below right.

Why everytime it looks like similat to this?
Why my Element 3D text coudn't show in similar position to my source text?

Element 3D Text is a 3d object that will appear in your frame based on where the camera is. The text source layer is just that- a source for the text shapes, and not for positioning. You have to move the text object using the 3d controls from the plugin to position it.

You can not position it without a bit of work. However, if you position your text layer as a 3d layer, you can generate a Null from Element 3D for your text object and then Shift Parent that to the text layer you initially positioned. That should bring the Element 3D text to the same 3d coordinates.
