    Only had a quick go at this but got something workable

    If you create the text - then create outlines.

    Draw paths where you want the cracks to be.

    Use "offset path" and choose an acceptable amount

    Ungroup the offset path and delete the middle portion.

    Use the Pathfinder - divide and then manually remove the sections from the letters.

    3D extrude

    You can the use the "Effect >Texture>Cracqulene" to apply the texture.

    However, I recommend creating artwork for the Cracqulene effect and then apply that via the Map Art option on the 3D extrude.

    Hope that helps you with some sort of start?


    Here's a quick one I did - took about five minutes - but Mapping a vector Cracqulene would take longer but better results.
