I am looking for icon ideas on how to represent a smoothing quality. The icon will be used for a tool that will smooth out points on a jagged curve.

I'd suggest an icon that literally demonstrates the process you're trying to show:

Take a jagged circle, and turn it into a smooth one.

Similarly, take a jagged line and make it curvy.


I've also seen an iron used for this kind of functionality
