The Fab Tool icon page is a good start but needs to be cleaned up for easy viewing and copying when needed.
Find the "how to build" build instructionals here I quickly reviewed the documents and found it a bit hard to follow. What´s the difference between the two types of templates other than "template" and "advanced template"? What are the use cases and which criteria should someone use to choose either? It looks like the "template" would be the first draft document that an build would be described in, as the build occurs which could later be turned into the "advanced template" format as the second, third, etc. refinements in the build occur. It would be helpful to take existing instructions for a machine that has been built several times and turn it into an "advanced template" format for reference for creating other instructionals (add this to todolist).
Next up is the example of a sample general overview for a part build, in this case a door  Though this is just an example, it does not make clear what the door belongs to, what larger project is this a part of? If these are to be created in a swarm of multiple projects, we could quickly lose track of which part belongs to which project unless it is clearly labeled at the top. Also, Fab is an abbreviation not everyone may be familiar with, so it should either be written out completely or have an asterisk with a line explaining its meaning. Much like blueprints, these "simplified build instructions" should have a legend that contains basic info like when the part was built, what project the part belongs to, whether it´s a part of component, tools used, safety gear used, overall dimensions, and this might also be a good place to add the time it takes to build, the number of steps it has, though those will be indicated elsewhere on the page, redundancy in this case is a good thing. It forces the person creating the document to check and recheck their work. Also, when a viewer is reviewing a stack of these "simplified build instructions" (as in a component of a machine) it would be very helpful to have these data points all in the same place on the page, lower right for example so they can see key data at a glance.
Next up is the "Full protocol" (add to todolist)

Worked up the first draft for the OSE Apprenticeship flyer and updated the Summer of Extreme build flyer (see link below)
Sun May 16, 2021
I looked through some previous flyer designs in preparation for creating new flyers for upcoming OSE events.
Here's a link to the draft for the Summer X Extreme design/build flyer
Tue May 11, 2021
Had a meeting with Marcin about creating icons for the Seed Eco Home v2 build.
Here are some related links - Some introductory information about OSE icons; a link to a blog post I wrote, a collaboration sign-up form,completion stats and icon repository
- This is a step by step tutorial that describes a process collaborators can use to guide them in the creation of new icons using inkscape
- This is the working document I'll be using to keep track of progress on the new deliverables for this project

When printing graphics in which the D3D printer logo appears or sending just the logo to a printer to be applied to merchandise (t-shirts, mugs, stickers, etc.) it´s important to use the version of the logo that has the TEXT OUTLINED (non editable). Below are the links to the landscape and portrait versions of the D3D printer logo with outlined text, ready for print:
made final updates to OSE product logo template in inkscape
There are some template specs in this file: pdf presentation V1.0 here
worked up vector version for design approach #1 and 2 of OSE D3D printer product logo in landscape orientation.
worked up a updated sketches for design approach #1 and added them to presentation with a side by side comparison of OSE product logo icons design approaches #1 & 2
worked up sketches and compiled icons proposals for design approach #2 of OSE product logos D3D printer, CEB press, powercube and microhouse
added new logo proposal for design approach #1 comparing the abbreviated, fully spelled out and a hybrid option for the Open Source Ecology brand text
added new logo sketches exploring design approach #1 "looks like crossection view" to presentation v0.3 OSE product logo template
added first draft D3D, CEB press, power cube and microhouse logos using design approach #1 (landscape and portrait versions)
new sketches exploring design approaches for OSE product logo template
compiling competitor logo and machine side by side comparisons as part of OSE product logo template research
working on initial sketches and proposals for OSE product logo template
Working on freecad d3d 3d printer icons, extruder and heat bed and added here source folder
2017 Work Log Entries
Continue working on freecad d3d 3d printer icons, frame, x/y/z-axis, controller, power supply, wiring, and spool holder
Tweaked the first part of the overall assembly script in google docs and recorded the audio version using voice recorder from a cellphone. Created a kdenlive file to start Part 1 of the overall d3d assembly tutorial.
Re-recorded audio and tweaked video in kdenlive.
Attended D3D team meeting team meeting
Worked in freecad on the carriage axis exploded animation, and rewrote the script, and recorded the voice over in audacity and combined the vokoscreen video in kdenlive and uploaded the result to youtube and posted in the minds network.
Added missing axis nuts and bolts and some magnets to "universal x axis" exloded view freecad file and worked up a partial update of the exploded view graphic in google doc
Updated background image, added links and connecting lines between text flyouts and parts of universal axis exploded view graphic in google doc
D3D development updated the infographic adding and modifying texts 
Attended D3D team meeting,
D3D development updated the infographic texts and finalized the illustration 
D3D development worked up partial update of the 3d printer infographic combining text and illustration
new infographic illustration underlay sketch
infographic illustration sketch
D3D development continued familiarizing myself with components of the printer for the main infographic illustration 
SOLVED: Just needed to find the right combination of video quality, video length, speed percentage and CPU memory use for kdenlive to output a decent render of the FreeCAD test video and here the final freeCAD file.
Still having trouble rendering the kdenlive file that contains the vokoscreen video edit in order to complete the FreeCAD self evaluation. When the rendering is complete this is the result I get. After 12+ hours of practicing in FreeCAD, downloads & installations, watching tutorials and reading through freeCAD documentation, it took 37min to complete the FreeCAD test.
Two versions of the OSE sticker (4 x 2 inches) for printing and corresponding source files
FreeCad Certified icon variants organized by format:
These icons (512 x 512px) can be obtained from sourcefile here by making visible or hiding different layer combinations in Inkscape.
- Watch this 2min. video for a brief walk through of how to modify the Inkscape file.
