First, create sketched curves using text in your sketch (you can chose different type of font).

If you want the top surface of your letter perfertly parrallel to the base surface, make a offset surface and then extrude or cut using the curves as refences up to surface.

you can also add draft angle easily.

If you want only simulate print character (for a keyboard for exemple) create an offset surface (0.05mm)and cut it by the projected curves, than change the color of the surface.
