    I'm trying to engrave text on the external surface of a short piece of

    I went to sketch tool, then text and selected the "Place Along Curve,"
    but no luck.

    Can anyone give some guidance on how to do it?

    Thank You.

    Try projecting a surface (in the shape of the text) onto the surface &
    thickening it.

    You can also project or wrap curves onto a surface and use those to create a
    cut. Or you could create an extruced cut by sketching the text on a plane
    above the surface and using a copied/offset surface to set the depth.
