This model was inspired by the Rubik's cube model (rubiksCarter1999) and was my attempt to learn how to use the Sasami notation. It is a tethradron version of the Rubik's cube. This version is unlike the real-life model in that it is not solid but is still the same problem and can be solved in the same way. There is an interesting attempt at writing an agent-based script to solve the Pyraminx without specifying an algorithm. At the moment this does not fully work but a description of how it works and how it could be improved is in the README file.
