Almost every year we get such a topic.
Seriously, can't you guys spend your time on something that would actually be useful
to the FreeCAD project?
FreeCAD is already missing quite a few toolbar icons, it's not difficult to find where if you take the time to familiarize yourself with FreeCAD.
And let's not talk about UX/UI work that would be of much help.
But no, everyone wants to remake the FreeCAD logo
I can't help but think this is fuelled by vanity
rather than by desire to help the FreeCAD project. Reality check:
logo design is hard. It takes skill and talent. None of the icon attempts I've seen here are better than the existing FC logo.

+1 it's a straight up copy rotated 90 degrees.

There was never a logo challenge. One graphics designer dropped in with his unsolicited proposal, someone else replied with his, and you
made it a challenge.
I really think your post is out place and tone, we all try to help FreeCAD as we are able to, someones with code, other with design, others with suggestions, others with bug reporting, etc. Everything sums
If we here are talking about the logo, is because we love FreeCAD and feel like it can be much better (as always, it's just a single opinion) so that's the main reason we are debating about it... it doesn't mean we are forcing the change, we just talk and propose alternative logos. We used our time to think about it, sketch and design so it's not vanity
, it's a full desire to make FreeCAD a better thing.
As I can't tell you how to spend your time, you cannot tell us how to spend (and enjoy) ours, so if we feel like designing and sharing alternative FreeCAD icons it should fine, if we feel like designing a full icon replacement for FreeCAD
it should be fine, if we feel like creating a full theme stylesheet for FreeCAD
it should be fine, if we feel like designing the icons you refer to
it should be fine:
(I just need some indications on how to name and place them inside /src/ folder and I would "pull request" them... if you like them, of course)
Well, I think you have the idea, I don't want to argue, but you should pay attention to the tone of your words because someone could feel bad about them and somehow he could decide not to continue helping the FreeCAD community anymore (it's not my case...)
