Ugh, the logo looked great to me before but FreeCAD needs to distance itself from these products, a copy cat logo gives the wrong message.

I'm afraid there's not much further we can get in the logo department:
1. Curves and a 3D look are central to any CAD/CAE program.
2. Red and blue are primary colors that we can't escape either.

there's been a bunch of proposals over the years that have no resemblance to these icons.

On the same note, I have concerns that this logo looks somewhat similar to CAD International's.

The original Logo has a charm but it's very wacky looking. I overhauled it by updating the alignment, proportions, and color scheme. If the developers decide to update; I've created a pull request to ease integration. https://github.com/JacobHepworth/FreeCA ... eeCAD-logo
Edit: The fork remains, but I closed the pull request to try and keep discussion here.

I admit some resemblance, but I've never seen it before. My intention was to make a winged CAD and the symmetry has led me to see the D as a reflection of the C.
