Tips for solving the Klein's Quartic length 3

Stragegy 1 This puzzle is the 24-coloured version of the heptagonal tiling {7,3}. The slices are related to that of the Rubik's cube's or more specifically the Megaminx's, therefore the solution is not difficult. Although, sometimes careful setup and insertion moves are required because of crowded space that forms after several centers are solved.

Strategy 2

``` (a) solve the edges with simple commutators
(b) solve the vertices with the two sequences below
(with eventual pre- and post-paration; adjunction)
```

Sequence 1

alternate first and second color twist to get a pair of vertex exchanges

11 11 11 11 11 11

bold = counter clock

Sequence 2

alternate first and second color twist to get a pair of vertex-turns

21 11 31 11 21 11 11 11 11 11 11

21 11 11 21 11 31 11 21 11 11 11 1

bold = counter clock

example: 11 31 means

```   first color counter clock one unit
second color counter clock one unit
first color with clock three units
second color counter clock one unit
```
