3D Text (V-Groove)

Good day, can anybody help me out? Im trying to get this text carved with a draft angle.but as soon as I extrude it deeper than one or two mill the operation fails. For some reason I can not get a full carving eliminating any flat spots on the bottom.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance!

    The draft is most likely failing because of the lack of flat, un-drafted space on certain parts of the M. It looks like the drafts on the left side collide with each other, so there may not be enough material to draft out the model for the given angle that you are using. Try switching up the draft angle to see how that has an affect on things.
