Thanks,
I'll create the parent part this week. :-)

Contains the same BFC inverse triangle as clh5.dat does. ;-)

IMHO this should be reduced to a lo-res design, like most of the click hinges are beginning to get.
I'm currently working on clh4, clh10 and clh11

I've changed my mind. This is the way.

Or, am I wrong?
The dual finger clh3, in the other end of 54662, is reduced to a full lo-res design.

What, exactly, needs to be reduced? Unlike the single finger, I don't really see anything that can be reduced.

Take this primitive as an example. It's used twice on the part 54662.
It has 7 fingers. The tip of each finger is made from a lo-res 2-4cyli (4 surfaces) and the "valley" between the fingers, is made from a normal res 2-4cyli (8 surfaces).
In the other end of part 54662 is the corresponding clh3 primitive.
The corresponding "tip and valley" on that prim is made from only lo-res prims. One small 2-4cyli and 2 bigger 2-4cylis.

I think it was Gerald who started a rework of the clh3 primitive and reduced the "edges/corners" and the "click" to a lo-res design.
We need a decision on how to bring these click hinges to a solution where the male and female primitives match.
All lo-res, or normal resolution in the valley?

The geometric faces should match each other when the single finger and this prim are mated. That means the proper solution is the latter of your two suggestions.
