I am building a drag and drop web builder.

One of the actions requires that the user select a "component" from the sidebar and drag it across the page. Once they drop it, the component fills the page.

Now, I do not want each component to have a unique icon... I would rather it be that I have one generic icon to represent a component.

Now my question is, what should that icon be? So far I am using a rounded square, which works ok... but seems kinda forced.

Instead of looking for the component icon that is quite difficult to unify, you can do it by the element that unifies everything: the action → placing or putting.
