Subject: [MC4D] I’m solving the 600-cell

Hi guys,

Since last weekend I’ve been solving the 600-cell using MPUlt. Of course I’m solving the "simplified" version with about 2,000 pieces, but not the full version with over 200,000 pieces.

Now I’ve spent 21+ hours, and have solved all the 1200 2C face pieces. Then I need to deal with 720 5C edges, and 120 corner pieces. In terms of number of pieces it sounds easier than the 120-cell. But visually this puzzle is, I would say, more complicated. Because in the 120-cell, you basically see 120 things, whereas here you see 600 things. Because of this difference, I’m taking a different approach of moving the pieces around. This method is working well so far.

I posted a screenshot here:

I hope in a several days or weeks I can solve the whole puzzle.

Andrey, thanks again for making MPUlt!
