A personal milestone
Thanks for all the kind words of you all, this made it really fun to make some progress!
The icons for the workbenches "Part" and "Part Design" are complete – not perfect but complete
(Note: I haven't incorporated all the feedback regarding contrast/colorblindness/etc. yet but try to do my best)
This is what an overview of all icons looks like:
If you want to check it out, here is the .rcc file as .zip (because I couldn't upload the plain .rcc file here).

Is there a release of this?
I added the the .rcc file – you have to unzip it and follow the instructions from triplus awesome icon addon
Let me know what you think – feedback is very welcome

Those are some really nice icons! I will be using them for sure. Please keep up the good work!
Have you considered writing some guidelines so others can contribute icons? A guide like https://material.io/design
(not as exhaustive of course
) could be very helpful to others and might help you streamline your process. Some simple rules like these maybe:
Thanks for the tip of the readme and breaking the tasks into smaller chunks.
Even though it's still a long road ahead it feels really good to now have completed parts of it

I'm impressed by your work so far Stephan, and I think your contribution is very valuable!
We need good coders and code reviewers, but the time for a UI push has come, so we need you on board
Speaking on motivation, that's a good question. Maybe 1.5 hours work in the morning a couple of days a week, build a routine.
It might be on the side; but if you're ever interested in visiting Norway, I'd gladly accomodate you in Voss. My home is open to contributors and people interested in digital fabrication. I've studied 1.5 years in Germany, so language is no problem. Maybe connections around the world, and cooperation can be a motivational factor?
I'm also playing with the thought of arranging an 'Open source digital fabrication conference' next summer in Norway. Combining knowledge about building low cost, large format CNC machines as a community, combined with a conference for FreeCAD as well.
The post got a little longer than intended, but cheers from Norway! Haakon
Good point with the routine. Corona actually "forced" me to have a small workout routine every day, maybe I can make it a workout + FreeCAD routine
Thank you A LOT for the invitation – this is so kind. I actually have never been to Norway, but that sounds awesome. Let's hope the whole Corona situation is over in a few months, then I'd be happy to pay you a visit. It would be so much more fun to order a pizza and code/design next to each other
PS: The low-cost large format CNC machine project sounds cool and the open fabrication conference is an interesting idea as well.
I actually wanted to join an open workshop this year (where the have a CNC) but they currently have to limit access due to the situation being
I find projects like OpenDesk
or those joints adjusted for CNC
really interesting ... but I don't want to spam this thread anymore
