Awesome Andrey! The 32-cell is intriguing (I had never seen it), and it’s
exciting to see the truncated and rectified 24-cell puzzles in there as
well. Nice work!

We seem to be in a period of time where puzzle creation is outstripping
puzzle solutions. How long that trend continues remains to be seen, but
hopefully the graphs are not diverging :) I will say one excellent thing
about there being so many objects out there right now is that it is easy to
choose one and be the very first to go explore it.

If you’d like to take a break from making puzzles, I have a feature request.
I love the autorotation in MC4D because I can set an object spinning to
study it. It would be great to be able to do that here too.
