I want to see the progress of this icon theme
thanks for your efforts. One suggestion, find a name for it.
Good call! I have to think about that
Yeah, I saw that when I checked out the "How to contribute"-page.
I'll keep it in mind until I have progressed further! Thanks a lot for the hint!

Very god looking icons! I'm eager to try it out once its released. I don't know much about design myself but I think it's good to take advice from those who might actually know, so maybe it's worthwhile to hear the criticism that was made to other software and take it into account for your iconset: https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic. ... 27#p336012
Thanks a lot for the tip and the link to the video. I don't intend to reinvent the wheel – I am a huge fan of OnShape and Fusion360 and my plan is the bring the best bits from those tools to FreeCAD.
OnShape has very small and monochrome icons, and Fusion too detailed and large icons. So a mix should work perfectly for FreeCAD.
Of course FreeCAD has its own needs, but for the usual CAD icons those references are really handy
My current plan is to pump out as many icons as quickly as possible – in a very rough way – to see what style (colors, line thicknesses, etc.) works well in the application.
And once I reach a step where I feel that a good solution is found, the detail work starts
Thanks to Triplus' awesome work on the IconThemes, testing out the icons is really quick
