If anyone has nothing better to do...

...You might want to try to find a reasonably simple way to create a 3D letter "E" as in the attached screenshot. Having nothing better to do myself, I used two different approaches, both of them insanely tedious. One of these objects was made by lofting each face as a separate "sheet" object and then 3D-Adding to make a single object. The other was built up of 3D Boxes, sliced and 3D-Added and Filleted.

The attached .tcw is the outline I used (made by tracing a Times New Roman character).

I would tend to go for the 'follow along path' route but then, I was always a little off the beaten path.  Or as Grandpa would say "A stubborn so and so"!

Quick and a bit less than useful but the idea is there.

Very nice work on the letters Henry.

I was very lazy.  I activated Simple Extrude with Use Compound Profile, then I set the Draft Angle to -10° and voila.

Not the same, but close enough for 15 seconds' work.
