How do you create 3D Text?

I know I’m a noob, I’d know more if my CS professors actually listened to what us students asked for in a 3D graphics class. Anyways, I have a Text Renderer that has loaded up my custom font via a material. So now my goal is to make that text into a volume. How do I do that. I have been researching this since this morning and been messing with it all day haha.
