|Summary||0002003: Embossing/imprinting an FC logo directly to a solid model|
|Description||An idea came to life while taking on the Logo challenge:|
There should be a tool in Part/PartDesign WB allowing the user to easily tag the part with FreeCAD logo.

This feature request is not related to just closed issue 0002887.
This is about embossing/imprinting a FreeCAD logo directly to a solid model which may be interesting when 3D printing it.
Although this could be easily addressed with a macro, IMO this report should be reopened.
||Re-opened per @NormandC's request.|
||Renamed ticket for better comprehension|
||What's the point of having a specialized command for it, then?|
I'm not sure how triplus envisioned this feature.
Yes, a macro could do the job, but a menu entry would be more user-friendly. Arch has a Utilities menu that contains tools that do not immediately appear to be relevant to Arch.
Whether the menu calls a native C++ function or a python macro, or if its place is in the Part workbench or somewhere else is a matter to be discussed.
This tool could behave like a Draft Shapestring and create a single parametric object containing 2 faces (the F and the gear) that you can extrude, pad or pocket (which means it should be possible to attach it to a solid, just like Draft Shapestring). This FC logo object would have a scale property.
It's also not unlike the Involute gear utility in the Part Design menu.
In such form, maybe the best place for it would be the Draft workbench?
Another more involved alternative would be to give it a fully automated creation method including padding/pocketing process, but that is a high-level function that would not be suited to the Part workbench and may be a bit too specialized for the Part Design workbench.
Since this feature would in fact promote FreeCAD it would be useful to offer it natively.
