          Not quite sure what you're asking...

           

          First off, what version of Photoshop?

           

          For Photoshop CC for example you could, once you have your text layer current, choose 3D - New Extrusion from Selected Layer.

           

          Then you'll be working in the 3D environment, where you can do all sorts of things to the extruded shapes.

              Ah, now I see the issue.  You need at least 512MB of video RAM to use Photoshop 3D.

                  Someone else will have to advise you on iMac capabilities...  I'm not familiar with the system.
