Most people don’t know that almost every single one of the tool icons in both SketchUp and LayOut was created in SketchUp and/or LayOut – by our own John Bacus, no less. Tool icons that look 3D (like Push/Pull, Tape Measure and Paint Bucket) are all SketchUp models that John inserted into LayOut. Most have no post-processing at all.
While I was working on the updated Quick Reference Cards for SketchUp 8 and LayOut 3, it occurred to me that other people might be interested in using our icons. Having them as high-resolution images is super-useful for creating tutorials, which is something a lot of folks do. Laptop stickers and t-shirts with Follow Me on the back are also great expressions of SketchUp nerdom.
I’ve uploaded a couple of zipped folders that you’re free to grab; each icon is an individual, 800 x 800 pixel PNG with a transparent background:
Please use this post’s comments to let us know what you plan to do with them.
Update: Corrected download sources for the icon files.
