The Presentations package has direct Text3D (with regular computer fonts and Style and with block characters also) and VectorText3D if you want to warp the text to fit on a curved surface. 3D text moves when the plot is rotated and hides behind surfaces. The difficulty with 3D text is that you must specify the orientation as well as the position. To aid in this there are VerticalText3D and VerticalVectorText3D primitives to handle the simpler, and more common, case of vertical text. There is also A Text3DOrientation dynamic to aid in more general orientation. Also, an extensive tutorial.
