It would never search the top level project container behind a ruler icon, but I am engineer not architect. I might think different. :ugeek:

Let's go for the dome :) it looks more fancy and we need a bit of traditional inspiration when starting projects! Also, coordinates are likely to move to the site container in a future IFC spec from what I hear.
I also blog about 3D rendering, architecture, software and other on thinkMoult.com. RSS / Atom feed available for your convenience.

The icon of the ruler looks like a hammer for me.
I prefer JavaScript, I don't like Python indentation.

That is the "T Ruler"... the traditional tool of Architects. Not as clumsy or random as an Autocad. An elegant tool, for a more civilized age...

@bitacovir perhaps adding ruler marks to the handle portion of it? I could see how it would look like a hammer to someone, even though for me I recognized it immediately as a Ruler (didn't know it's official name though till now).

yes indeed! :D

Although i have to point out that its not a "ruler", is a "square". In English at least, they are called a "T Square". :)

As I said above, its not a ruler but a "T square", they don't traditionally have any numbers on them, you use it to draw horizontal lines but you also use it to sit another square on it to give you lines on other angles.

Also at icon size you would not see the numbers.

Now you know its not a Ruler! :D

Let me guess, you are so young that you think Technical drawings are done on a computer! :lol: I am old enough to have been taught technical drawing by hand in high school, but my dad had already taught me years earlier when I was in primary school because I thought it was cool. :)

here is the wikipedia page...

Totally true what you say. But... at Latin america we call it "Regla T". Spanish: Regla=Ruler, because of its shape more similar to a ruler than a square (triangular). And we old architects used to use them as swords to fight for our honor... (Latin America is a savage land)

The ruler has the advantage that it conveys well the idea that the project (will) define a coordinates system.
In the beginning, it was the white table. And the Architect put the T ruler on position, draw a line and he saw it was good.
Did you think of that as you came around the moon? :)

To anyone who doesn't understand what I am on about, Apollo 8 message to Earth, Christmas eve 1968! :) Listening to them reading Genesis with a picture of Earth Rise in the background is a very emotionally powerful image.

Australia was critical to the Apollo missions, our radio telescopes were the receiving stations when the Earth rotated accordingly. We received the signal as Neil Armstrong walked out the first time "one small step...." was received in Australia. I have reasonably recently taken my kids to both Tidbinbilla (near Canberra) and Parkes radio telescope (in a sheep paddock near Parkes NSW). The Parkes trip was good, since I am a local bloke (I only live about 200km away), I arranged with one of the scientist who was going to be on site when we went there, to give my kids and I a private VIP tour up the tower to the dish etc. where the public can not normally go. It was great!

Parkes is roughly 500km west/inland from Sydney, in the middle of the state of New South Wales.
