I see. I'll add them everywhere then. Is this maybe the reason why the 3626ap01 face does not look smooth?

IMHO you'll get better results if you give up completely the cyli primitive, and create central rim from triangle/quads fitting exactly the subparts. My Coverer tool may help for this.

Ah, that's a problem with the cyli primitive not being a real cylinder...

On the other hand, if don't use the primitive, then LDView (and others, I guess) won't be capable of replacing it with a real cylinder, Or, if I use the primitive but match the other polygons to the primitive's edges, then when a real cylinder is substituted the point's won't match. Am I right assuming from your answer that one should not use the primitives in these cases?

Same in the inner part, around the hub. I added edge lines following the real cylinder shape, not the 16-edged primitive. Should I do otherwise?
