Re: AxesLabel parallel to 3D axes?

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.

Decent built-in 3D text is long overdue in Mathematica. I think.
