I added it all artificially. They should flash on when you rotate the model. I've highlighted an example on 4-4cyli.dat

You can put 'show all' but I don't find it so helpful since it's hard to tell what is a real line, a control point, or an optional line.

The unmatched edges around my part, should I add edgelines there? And if so, how do I do that? Edger2 seems only be able to create umatched edges in red...

Wow, and then I used Edger2 to create conditional lines. It did that. About 150. And I only need about 20. How do I find out which condlines are needed and which not, without going through every line of code? Because, I think, when you advanced authors look at the code you can see lines, triangles, etc, I only see a bunch of numbers and have to put a 0 in front of every line to see, which line disappears. Really, condlines are starting to p*** me off.

In the case of this part I think you'd be best copying the edge lines from the unprinted part and sticking with just those. You'll too easily end up with too many using the print since it has many more quads.
