    Graphically enhancing your PanelView Plus or ViewSE project

    Most of the modern HMI projects I've seen look as if they escaped from the 70's. I mean, why spend hundreds (or thousands) of dollars on a modern HMI if your screens are going to consist of large square buttons and numeric displays?

    To be fair, there's often not enough time in the design schedule for polishing up graphical...

    I need a good HMI graphics library!! I've been looking online for DAYS!! :(

    I've been looking around for DAYS!! Can anyone PLEASE tell me where to get a decent HMI graphic library? I don't mean symbol factory, I mean graphics that actually look good lol. I need to import them into the HMI design platform for OPTO22 PAC Display Configurator. OPTO22 has symbol factory and I'm tired of my HMI designs looking like my 3rd grade art projects did in 1987! Every time I find something worth looking into online the site ends up only selling HMI software; not a graphics library with graphics I can use!!(ie: graphic exportable to PNG/JPG etc.) VERY FRUSTRATED!! PLEASE HELP!!

    Good morning @ezg669,

    Great question!

    I know companies like Siemens and Rockwell are adding support for SVGs and 4K displays so graphics look better on modern displays.

    I also know that Symbol Factory 3.0 is out and supports SVGs as well (coming with the next release of FactoryTalk ViewStudio):

    Aside form that, I can't find any good libraries either - this is the only other site my Google search finds:

    If you do find something better please let us know!
