If someone have time for these jobs, it would be helpfull.

Bye.
I assume these two tools are measurement tools.
Here design icons for each one... let me know if it is ok.

Hi Bitacovir,

thanks for your work. The first is's ok for me.
but the second : surface roughness is not a measure but an indication of « process tolerance » (i a m not sure of english expression).

The symbol is normalize. Perhaps the symbol must be in blue theme like welding ? you can search online with the keywords " surface texture CAD software" for example. Formally CAD software use the symbol in icon.
Perhaps in reorient the arrow in vertical is better. Roughness is an indication in vertical dimension more than horizontal.

Any user can have other idea ? I'm not a specialist of this feature.

bye

I can change it, but you must define if the icon is blue or yellow.

Hello!

I would also prefer the basic symbol for roughness.
See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Surface_roughness acc. ISO 1302

Do you know this cool macro to place surface characters in Techdraw?

It works in combination with a balloon.

It's for geometric symbols, we need something similar for roughness symbols, best with Inkscape SVG and editable text string, like the brandnew welding symbol's. Sorry, my English is not so good.

yes...recently but is it a macro not a integreted tool. At this time for my work i use balloon and svg editable symbol but is not very useful. So i have motivate by create a dedicated tool for GDT.
