Hey all, I've recently had a problem with photoshop 3D. Once I've imported the 3D object I want to texture and I create a new layer to paint on (before flattening) when I return to the 3D panel to move/rotate the object, it shows the following : https://gyazo.com/e1e470a5f68e8ad3ac2794d2d638c85a and has become a flat 2D layer it seems. I'm not sure if I have accidentally changed a setting which is causing this or not, any ideas of what could be going wrong? Thanks :)

3D tools do not work on normal layers. It will only work on 3D layers. So, when you create a normal new layer it means you have gone back to 2D.
Either you can paint directly on your 3D model using the brush tool or if it is a complex model you have to split the textures and paint them on like Diffuse, spec, bump, etc.

Here is a quick search tut -https://youtu.be/2UO0b7C5hKk
