Hi, I want to create a box or a cube in after effects, so I have all of the 6 sides (1 front, 2 back, 3 left, 4 right, etc) in a composition, and everything looks OK in 3d, but... when I rotate the cube or the camera around the layer order messes up the cube, for example if I want to turn it 180ยบ to see the back, the front side (top layer) won't let me see the back layer, even if the camera is placed in the back. Is there something I need to activate???

it seems "point of interest" issue... so have you parent the camera to a 3d null object? if not parent the camera to 3d null object.. so the cam movements get easier..

make sure, in your timeline panel, that there is no 2d layer between any of your six (one for each side of the cube) 3d layers, don't use photoshop styles too.
