I just had a quick look - great work! The only thing I noticed that can be improved: on top side, the beam front quad is too long and bleeds through the gear ring.

That kind of is the entire point of this review and certification process anyway. :P

Looks like I was beaten to this one, I've been intending to model it for a while now. Will come back to review in full later, I'm in the middle of finalizing my own part.

This *definitely* is not an Arch though. I strongly believe this belongs in Technic.

Okay, took a closer look now. It otherwise looks good to me, but the center axlehole should have a stop of some sort inside it. An axle does not pass through it. There's a stop inside of it.

Part looks good to me now. I still find the name rather dubious.. this isn't really primarily a gear.

"Technic Connector Block 5 x 3(?) x 3 with Gear 9 Tooth Double Bevel"?

Either that or the good ol' peeron name with "Technic Bionicle Matoran Torso". This part never saw use outside Bionicle (though calling it strictly a matoran torso is a bit wrong...). And if we go by that logic, perhaps this part could be re-oriented to have the gear in the back?

Or is it really a gear first off? I really don't know here. Thoughts, people?

Maybe something similar to these?
41666.dat "Technic Arm 1 x 6 with Gear 12 Tooth Double Bevel Ends"
41667.dat "Technic Arm 3 x 2 with Gear 36 Tooth Double Bevel Quarter"

How about: "Technic Arm 3 x 5 with Gear 24 Tooth Double Bevel Half" ?

IMO, it should have the same orientation as those two too.

I'm curious you didn't use primitive toothb12.dat like all other double bevel gear parts instead of creating your own primitive?
Is there that much different to require a new tooth primitive?

Now that the Constraction is a thing, this should go into it. As a torso, it should be oriented as one.

I think this part is wrong.
https://www.bricklink.com/PL/44810.jpg?0

First of all it looks very thin. Many sections are only 2 ldu thick. I think it must be 3, or 4 ldu.
The inner diameter of the wheel is now 28 ldu. I think it could be 26-27.
The 3 cutouts on the bottom is only 0,1 ldu deep. I think it's at least 2 ldu.
Missing a vertical box on top of the centre axle hole.

But the main issue is that the pitch between the coggs is wrong. IMO it must be the same as a gear 28.

I fixed what was required apart from the depth of the lower cutouts. 2 LDU is not possible, maybe did you mean 0.2 LDU?
I had to modify the primitive toothb28d so as not to have a visible edgeline in the curved toothless section. since the primitive is not symmetrical, in that area the shape is a bit particular, it is not the classic cylindrical, but I think it can work anyway (it is ready as if you were to add another tooth).

What about description, shouldn't it be

Missing some edge lines inside the centre axlehole.
The inside surface of the big arch should be hi-res.

The cutouts should be deeper than 0.1 ldu. That's only 0.04 mm and they look deeper in this image.
https://img.bricklink.com/ItemImage/PL/44810.png
And I think that wall is thicker than 2 ldu.

Increased depth to 0.5 LDU.
Added the missing edge lines in the subpart.

Wasn't it said for the thickness of the walls that they were 2 or 4 LDUs? Do I make it from 3 LDUs?

For the cylindrical surface inside the gear, I thought of leaving it at 16 sides, to reduce the number of faces and leave the replacement to LDView.

This one is big enough to use the hi-res prim. The difference between the inner and outer lines hurts the eye.

When I look at the image of this part I think the thickness of all walls is uniform.
Now they vary between 2 and 3.45 ldu.

I measured the distances you indicated on the real piece and I reduced them to the value of 2 LDU.
Only the first dimension remains out of the modification due to the incorrect shape of the aclehole leading to a thickness of 3 LDU,
