: I've probably said this every time it comes up, but I've found the best way
: to get a recycle symbol is to buy the font, and cerate it as a datum curve.
: it's much easier to scale it, and it will be a consistent symbol. that said,
: if you are tooling a plastic part, the toolmaker should be able to buy an

Follow this link to Google Images and you'll find a wealth of published recycle
has at least one dingbats type recycle.ttf in a font
format, scaled to different point sizes with plastic code numbers in the middle.
That said, these may or may not be useful, depending on what use you plan to make
of them. If you just wanted to decorate a model with a decal, using the Pro/e
Appearance manager, either the graphic files or the dingbats font would be
If, on the other hand, you were hoping to use the graphic to create 'use edge'
curves for projecting onto a surface to create an offset (raised or depressed)
feature, neither the graphics nor the dingbats type fonts will do. These are
simply scanned, bitmapped images as produced by a paint program. You need vector
graphics such as produced by a drawing program, with line geometry and hard edges
which Pro/e can trace. Or, you could take the graphics files and use a ray trace
program to outline the graphics and possibly produce a drawn symbol. Or, you
bite the bullet and sit down with a drawing program and produce one yourself
quicker than all of our searching. Maybe you were hoping that some tireless,
generous person had already done that and would give it to you. Good luck!
But Craig is right about the callout on a print, indicating size and position on
mold cavity. The symbol is a stock, inserted item, widely available from mold
