Cut only text outline?

Is there a simple way of making a cutout of text but only using the outline (orange contour on the image) of text and nothing else (for 3D printing, the text elements inside the letters will be too small, so only outline is needed).

The easiest way I have found is to use the text sketch to make a split line on the surface. Then start a new sketch, select the face of the letter (generated by the split line), hit "convert entities" and the outline of the letter should be created in the sketch. Then simply use the "traced sketch" and make your cut.

Hope this helps.
