Even though this method is so simple, it is still good enough to achieve times of around 20 seconds on average and only about 30 seconds in the worst case scenario. Each of the four tips can be solved by just rotating them to match their adjacent pieces. Step 2 - Solving the Vertices To solve the vertices, just look at any tip. Since there are four colors on the Pyraminx and only three colors on each tip, the color missing from that tip will be the opposite face of that tip.

Buy Now Methods There are 2 general methods for solving the Pyraminx, V-First - where you solve a layer except an edge before finishing the puzzle, and Top-First - where you solve the top part of puzzle before solving the rest.

Therefore in this guide I will be giving tips on more advanced V-First solving techniques as well as more general advice. This guide is a summary of tips and advice that I hope will help you in the improvement of your Pyraminx solves.

I will be primarily cover L4E solving as when reading this guide you should already have decent knowledge of LBL solving. With an easier scramble and a bit of skilled look-ahead, one-looking the solve may be possible. A no-tip scramble is obviously going to be much nicer than a 4-tip scramble, as there is less of the puzzle to solve.

However the most common scenario is tips, so unless you have a lucky set of scrambles, they are going to play a key role in your solves. A common mistake is to solve all the tips at the end, this wastes time looking for how to solve them, time that can be used during inspection instead.

However it is still inefficient to solve them all at the start, so I personally recommend that during practice better untimed you experiment with solving tips. Another good way to practice tip solving is to do a lot of 4-tip scrambles, this will help you not to become overwhelmed by a bad scramble in the future. Colour Neutrality In 3x3 solving, when there is generally not too much difference between cross difficulty, colour neutrality is of much less importance.

Achieving colour neutrality is a lot easier to do on the Pyraminx as you may already have it with LBL, if not it only takes some practice solves on all four colours before you will know it like second nature!

You can still go from a total beginner to under 30 seconds in about an hour with this method: Step 1: Orient the four corners and their tips. These algorithms will move exactly three edges around, so just keep trying until you are done. Intermediate Methods Intermediate methods can easily give you an average of less than 10 seconds. Keyhole Step 1: Solve two edges around a center. Step 2: Use the extra edge slot, the "keyhole", to solve the centers of the last layer the layer opposite that center. Step 3: Solve the edge that belongs in the keyhole.

Step 3 - Video This step is a little bit harder than the first 2 steps, but it is still an easy once you know how to perform the moves correct and understand the process. Step 4 - The second Layer In step 4 we turn our attention to the 2nd layer of the Pyraminx. I hope so far that you find this guide easy to use and understand. Please do contact us if you are having any problems at all and we will try our best to help you solve your Pyraminx with 1 on 1 help. Anyway, lets move on. Place your Pyraminx back onto a table with the blue side down. With any colour facing you perform U moves until one of the pieces on the second layer is in the correct position and at the back of the puzzle like the image below.
