Twister


Algorithm Ronald F. Turner-Smith 1981, Tom Werneck 1981
TR TL TU TB
TU' TL' TU TL
TB' TR TB TR'
TU' TR' TU TR (16 ltm, 16 ftm)

Algorithm Tim Bandelow 1982
TR TU TL TU TR' TL TR' TL' TR' TB TU' (11 ltm, 11* ftm)

Algorithm Walter Randelshofer 2015
TB TL' TU TL TR TL
TU' TR TU' TR' TU' (11 ltm, 11* ftm)


Note
The Twister, one of the 32 antipodes of the Pyraminx, can be generated optimally in 11* ftm. This is the maximum number of twists required to reach every R-position (disregarding rotations of the trivial corners).
