I have been generating 1LLL algs on cube explorer, and by the end of the hour I had generated more than 1.5 million algs. I loaded them into cube explorer to see how many seperate cases there were, and I turned off loading icosomorphs and inversions. This should end up with about 1200 cases, right? Maybe 3900? I don't know why, but it turned out to be a total of 4446 cases! And I don't think that's it! Maybe this is a bug? Or am I looking at this wrong?

The fastest way to know that it's less than 4446 cases is to just to multiple the possible PLL cases (72) times OLL cases (57) which gives you 4104, but It would be significantly less than this when taking symmetry into account.

Well for each OLL case there's 72 or less algs, 72 is for PLL because you have to count different AUF's as different cases. For ZBLL, 72 PLL cases * 7 OLL cases is 504, which is a close estimate, but for full last layer you would need to subtract a bunch more for symmetry.
