I'd like to use blender to add some text in braille to some blender 3D modela in order to print them via 3D printers. Is it possible in an easy way? How?

I know nothing about braille but this should be as simple as grabbing a suitable font and extruding it. I tried braille normal from fontspace. Once in Blender, add a Text object, edit it as needed and then navigate to the .ttf font file under Font, the Regular input should be enough.

enter image description here

One you are satisfied, you can edit the Extrude slider for the depth or convert it to an object and play with it some more (booleans etc).
