Solved about 20/32 sides on the Tuttminx so far. I haven't really had time to sit down and really concentrate on it. Can't wait to figure out the last layer.. If I actually solve this bad boy, I will post a tutorial! :lol:

EDIT: I can put pics up if you guys wanna see :P

I got THIS CLOSE to solving it.. But the Megaminx algorithm I tried using on it just made it worse. So I ended up taking out my handy dandy screwdriver and put it back to its solved state. :?

Using J perms and T perms should quite easily solve the edges. From there just take out a corner, move the top layer to where it should be, insert that corner whilst removing another, and so on. Pretty much a standard Megaminx last layer solve.

Thanks. I think I messed up on the J perm, which was the problem. Because then all the sides touching that layer got messed up :?

I'm fairly sure it's easier if you solve a pentagonal side last, as then you can apply basic principled from the Megaminx onto the Tuttminx.

Doesnt work like that. Hexagonal sides turn in multiples of 2.

I know. But due to the number of sides you can move pieces quite far out the way so they won't get affected. I think corner cycles will work fine; edges may be a little stuggle but they probably aren't that hard either.

I did it using pure corner cycles or something like that. Thanks Konrad.

I think I need some help: I reassembled it, but now the turning is horrible! Not only that, but there are some "gaps" between some pieces.
Strangest thing is that my tuttminx is not jumbled as I followed the official site way of assembling it.
The pieces feel like they do not fit well. Any Tips?
There are corner pieces, little edges and big edges, right? Or is there 2 kinds of corners too?

There is only one kind of corner but be careful with them as there is only one specific way they should be oriented. Two of the three sides are specifically for the hexagon sides and the last side which is different are for the pentagon sides. It is easy to mix up this orientation when putting the puzzle together.

As for the edges there are two types. One is the same on each edge which is used between two hexagon sides. The other has one small and one large side for use between a hexagon and a pentagon.
