Splash screen competition for 0.17 release

Postby yorik » Sun Jan 14, 2018 2:03 pm

Let's do a small competition for a new splash screen for the "official" 0.17 release? I would say, anything works, no need to be done with FreeCAD, but of course if it's done with FreeCAD it's better ;)

Here are a couple of first tries I did... A bit too Arch-centered of course, I'll submit more later on.
If enough people post ideas, let's vote afterwards! (Make sure you add a number to your proposal, like started below):

An "official challenge"? Nice.

Don't we have one already in FC0.17?

I always thought those splash screens needed more 'green' No clue how to make a pretty one though. :lol:

Here's a stupid idea: why not have more than one, and have them in rotation (in order or randomly?) each time you launch FreeCAD. Kind of like the banner the FreeCAD website used to have. That way there could be an Arch-oriented splash screen, a Path one, an FEM one, and of course a PartDesign one... That would really show what FreeCAD is all about!

Would it be possible to implement in time for the 0.17 release?

I think one from the massive assemblies of engines, etc. that are sometimes posted in Users Showcase would be awesome.

If someone wants to code this, why not... But IMHO it only makes sense if we have a collection of splash screens formatted and ready. And then, who's going to curate the list, what if next year we're still with the same old ones that were never updated, etc. I would suggest, let's try to make a series of good ones here first, then if we have many good quality ones, we see about it...

I like your images (with the FreeCAD colors). But I would suggest a bit of zoom out in the camera. I mean, the interesting thing about your work is that you use FreeCAD as BIM/Space modeler. So try to show more of the space sense from the wikilab.

I dunno, I like the one currently in use... it's got gears in it.

+1.

I do like the current one, it is cool!!

If it needs to be changed, then I would definitely like to see something including the milling path of path wb.

Although one must admit that that industrial complex of Yorik looks good too ;)
