some Inspiations from other cams:
As mention before the main style of the tools looks a bit more like a drill. I like the style of this one https://freecadweb.org/wiki/File:Path-MachineMill.svg but i think it could have more contrast, because when its very small it becomes blur.
The array Icon looks a bit like a depth setting. Maybe its more clear, if it looks more like this just for example (its from "nativeCam")
I like the top view of this. It makes it intuitive. Of cause it should not be just a cycle, but a very simple contour line like:
I like the "create a non-parametric copy..." mostly. In my opinion the 3 icons for copy/array should more similar.
( I also notice the icon in the "operation" is not the array icon... -> screenshot )
as sliptonic and i wrote in https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic. ... 4d#p207297
that would be very nice+some nice Pictures
In heekscad for example is is so great to have a little pics for explanations. It was mention before in some post. would it be possible?
Very possible. The infrastructure to display the pictures in the task panels has already been written. We need someone to do svg images and someone to put in the time to do it. This probably won't make it into the next release but should get some attention after that.
what do you think? what is your opinion? I will try to play i bit with the design and post my results...
