Anyone know of any typeface that is 3D looking? Like in the picture here. Does not need to be this typeface, just needs to be 3D looking. I don't want to make 3D type by hand in photoshop. I have hundreds of little words I need to make. Any I'm not looking for these kinds of 3D typeface.

I think that looks like it's just type then effects applied to look 3D. Try searching for some tutorials on how to make (I really like abduzeedo but there are lots and lots out there). It looks like a simple soft gradient across the letters, slight drop shadow to lift it up and another drop shadow extended further left.
I say all this because type is usually a vector (line art, scalable) format and drop shadows are usually bitmap-based.

I agree with Pink (Dawn), this was manually done and you can use a few methods.
In Photoshop. Once you find the method of duplicating the above or your own 3D style, set up an action that applies the effect/s to all the files within a particular folder. Walla.
Here's a tutorial on how to do the first part in Illustrator. All you need to do then is apply a drop shadow. You can do this to a page full of little text and then splice it all up.
Hope this helps you.
