Shouldn't this be in category Minifig Footwear? I think the descripition should also be 'Minifig Flipper ...' with ... distinguishing it from 2599.dat

As this is intended to use with Technic Figures I like the description at it is.

I like description and category...
The problems I detected:
- The stud2 have a slight x-offset (0.03 instead of 0). Could possibly use a stug2
- Inner separators in the part, caused by sloppy LDD modeling, should be removed:
4 16 10 4 11.25 10 4 -11.25 10 0 -10 10 0 10
and
4 16 64.846 2 -13.965 64.846 2 13.965 30 -6.712 10 30 -6.712 -10
and associated edge lines.
The problem is not so much the internal surfaces (the part is not transparent) but the edge of the surface that appears at some view directions. And the edge lines bordering these quads in flat areas should definitely not be there.
- condline should be a fixed line (surface angle break in physical part)
5 24 30 -8 -13.896 30 -8 -11.885 67.484 1.371 -15.992 18 -8 -10.419 and symmetrical
- I would use a cylc primitive to make the stud4 recess
- I would rotate the part 90 degrees to match orientation of 2599 minifig flipper

"Technic Scuba Flipper" is much better than "Flipper". Thx.

I still see a lot of ldd design left, unnecessary vertices and triangels that could be Rectified.
The 12-sided design of ldd should be replaced by our 16-sided primitives.

Use 4-4cyli, 3-4cyli and 3-4ring4 for underside hole.

It is often a good idea to use a ndis around circular primitives.
I think there sould be one around the hole on the bottom surface.

Used a ndis suggested by Magfors.

Comments:
Edgelines in a circle should be replaced with a edge primitive.

The change of the hole design prevents proper primitive substitution.
Something like this would be better, (and also include the missing edge prims):

OK.
The Corners I unterstand.
But by using the 7/8 cylo, 7/8 chrd I get some t-junctions in the area of the increase. I always thought T-junctions should be as infrequent as possible.

Comments:

It depends on how you choose to define a T-junction.
When working with circular primitives a smooth rendering trumps T-junctions.

Some software have the abillity to reshape a circular primitive,
but that will only work if there is a primitive to reshape. It cannot bend a quad or a line.
Therefor it is better to use a 1-8cyli + 7-8cyli to close the circle.

Don't be obsessed by T-junctions! most of the time they do no arm, and can save a lot of surfaces to render or actually look better.

Since you're now using some cylo primitives, that include edge primitives,
all the loose edges around the hole could be removed.

There's also duplicated surface in the hole. This triangle is not needed:

Sorry to hear that.

Two of the vertices are misplaced, creating an impossible mould.
0 !LPE VERTEX +/-13.965 2 -64.846
I could correct them, if you don't feel up for it.
The condlines connected to this surface is also not correct/missing.

Hi Magnus
It would be very nice if you would do it.
A simple question or not: How do you detect such mistakes?
Regards Johann

Moved two vertices, on each side.
This type of error is only detectable through a visual inspection.
