Since Ultimaker Cura 3.5.x there will be a platform for distributing 3rd party contents. Since there are already plugins for Cura, which I currently own, I need some icons to be designed.
The icons should give the impression that the plugins are made for Cura, but should, on the other hand, remember of the 3rd party application. This way the user should become the feeling that there is a crossing between both applications. Therefore the outer contour of the Cura icon should be adapted, the capital “C” in the middle should be replaced with the shape of the 3rd party application and a plug in the lower right corner should underline that this is a plugin. Optionally, shadows can be used inside the symbol to emphasize the relation to the 3rd party application’s icon.
Here a list of all needed icons with examples of the application icons.
- 3DS SolidWorks
- Autodesk Inventor
To visualize the concept I have in mind, here an example on FreeCAD:
