After Effects and Cinema 4D Lite Tutorial

When trying to find out of Adobe was going to create some 3d modeling software, I found this tutorial explaining that After Effects already includes a Lite version of Cinema 4D which allows you to create some basic 3D modeling within AE. I'm choosing this specific tutorial by VinhSon Nguyen, because he creates a really beautiful example of text that is integrated into it's full-color- background. A really nice artistic approach explained very clearly. 

This AE feature seems useful for text, but perhaps not for my immediate need. My current goal is to create a 3d model of the packaging pieces I've made for my portfolio so that reader's can freely manipulate (twist & Turn) the image while viewing. Need to do more research on the right program to learn to accomplish this.
