Create a sketch on the face of the part to which you want to add extruded text.
Add text using the Sketch/Text ribbon.
Add dimensions or constraints, as needed. Finish the sketch.
Select Extrude, or type E; then pick the text box. Enter an extrusion distance. (Hint: you can also cut the text into the part.)
The extruded text will be created as a feature and is editable like any other feature.
To change the color of the feature so that it stands out, right-click the feature and select properties.
Select Feature Appearance, and change to the desired appearance.
