The icon that looks like an extrusion of a bezier curve, is that tool really only limited to bezier curves as argument(s)?
My very rudimentary tests suggest it takes any line/curve/edge as argument. Can anyone else test as well?

Blue with yellow icons are very nice!

The icon with the large yellow border looks off to me. I think the issue is the mix between orthographic and oblique projection. The icon uses oblique projection but the inner border is parallel to the outer border. This results in there being two projection endpoints.

Yes I know. It is because I am using single yellow lines with their regular thickness. I think it is not relevant perspective projections with these details.

Great work on the Icons!

I'm wondering why you chose to have an internal black stroke on the yellow outline on the Surface Filling icon? Maybe it would be more consistent to not have a black stroke between yellow and blue, as in Surface BSpline?

Thx.
I was thinking to change the BSpline adding a dark outline. For me it looks more clear at small icon sizes.

With these nice icons, we just want to see the missing features inside freecad now. ;)
