Bart Huffman asked about Marking SLA parts with text.

 You can use Caligari Truespace to turn a string of text into a 3D model, with
control over extrusion height, edge bevel, etc. You can also choose any TrueType
font that you may have installed under Windows. Then position your text onto
your model, and Boolean Union. This works with flat and compound curvature
surfaces. You can also create 3D Text in Corel-Draw and Trispectives, but in
these two packages, Union of Text onto STL files is "no go" at this time.
