How about sharing your SKP file as far as you’ve got it so we can see what you’ve got?

No problem the file is heretarghetta.skp (878.5 KB)

So I understand you want something like this. Is that correct?


Start with the text as 2D and make a copy of it. Make the copy unique and then use Offset on the edges. I used an offset distance of 0.1mm. Then make the extrusions as needed.
