Autodesk Icon Set

Autodesk Applications Icon Set Version 1.4

Version 1.4 Update: Small update. Sorry I made a small mistake when editing the Softimage XSI icon image when I was doing color matching of the frame and I covered partially the blue I letter and now it is fixed.

Version 1.3 Update: Changed the 3DS Max and XSI icons with different characters to separate them even more from other icons cause they were too similar to icons with the same letter and the same color. The 3DS Max icon had a blue M and so did the Maya icon which made them too similar. The Softimage XSI icon had a blue S that was very similar to the blue S in the Smoke icon. The 3DS Max icon now has a large 3 with smaller DS letters at the side and says Max at the bottom so even if it has the same color as the Maya icon (Autodesk chosen color) it has a different character. In Softimage XSI I did something similar by giving it an X with a smaller SI at the side instead of an S. Now the Maya and 3DS Max icons look more different and the Smoke and Softimage XSI icons are easier to tell apart too. I added a few more Autodesk application icons to the set making it a 18 icons total set. I was careful this time that those that have the same large letter use at least a different color. Also added the letters smoke in small letters below the S in the Smoke icon to further separate it from Sketchbook Pro icon which says Pro below (as before) and is red and the new Simulation icon which says Sim below and is orange to set it apart from the other two. I updated the colors of some of them, the Revit icon has a new blue that is similar to the blue Autodesk is using now for its logo (and abstract icon), the Inventor icons have the new orange which is a change from the previous yellow by Autodesk but I also left the old yellow icons as an alternative for those who prefer it and as an option to separate those two more from other icons. The Autocad icon has the 3 letters CAD at the bottom to separate it a wee bit more from the Alias icon which is the most similar. I know that all this does not make them perfect but at least they are a bit easier to tell apart now.

Version 1.2 Update: I brightened them in this version cause I noticed that they were rendered somewhat too dark so I adjusted them and now they look brighter, the way they are supposed to look.

This is a set of 12 icons for Autodesk applications. I noticed that there are not that many good quality icons for Autodesk applications out there and I did not like that much the new designs that they were using for the current generation of them in 2013 and 2014 programs. They are not ugly or unprofessional or anything like that, it is just that they are a bit too abstract for my taste. There are a few good quality icons for some of their programs out there in the web but they are inconsistent, made of different styles that do not match at all and I wanted to create a matching set that looked very modern so I decided to do it.

I wanted them to be done in a 3D program instead of doing them in illustration style cause that is what most of Autodesk applications are about, they have mainly 3D design and CAD programs so that is why I choose this style. Also I wanted them to have a modern industrial look and the design I made also reflects a lot the style of the newer IPhones cause they are quite the current fad. The font I used is one that has a style very similar to Autodesk's new logo cause it is very nice although this font I used has some letters that look different cause their new logo is a custom font design job.

It has Windows, Mac and Png versions. The Windows and Mac versions include icons from 16 to 256 pixels in size. The Png set includes images up to 512 pixels in size so if you want to modify the Mac icons to include a 512 pixel size you can do it if you have a program that can add the 512 pixel size Png to the icns file. I can not do it cause my icons program can only do it to a maximum of 256 pixels. You can modify it at least for your own personal use. I hope that you enjoy them.

That is exactly why I made them, I use them yself. I'm glad that they are of use to you too.
Man this is awesome! Was looking for these for a while.
Adobe is pretty easy to find, but a full set of autodesk of good quality is a different story.

Have a good one!
