# Pyramorphix

The pyramorphix is a 2x2 shape mod that was first produced in the early 1980s by Manfred Fritsche. It is in the shape of a tetrahedron and has 4 colors. Similar to the mastermorphix in design, it's essentially just the corners of it.

## Solve

Unlike the solve of the mastermorphix, the pyramorphix is typically done using an entirely different method to it's base puzzle (the 2x2).

Step 1: Return to a tetrahedron

Can be done in 3 moves at most, with 7 total different shapes possible (including the tetrahedral shape)

Step 2: Solve 2 corners

Not too uncommon to have this step already done, but if not it can be done in only 2 moves. These corners are held in front for the rest of the solve.

Step 3: Solve the remaining 2 corners

This is separated into two steps, and where 2 of the 3 required algorithms are used.

Part A: Match two colors on the same side of the corners. The algorithm might have to be done multiple times.

Part B: Fully solve the remaining two corners

Step 4: Solve the center triangles

Very easy to do, but might take a couple times. Done by making sure none of the centers are correct, then performing the algorithm again to shift the centers into their place.

## Products

Many different versions of the pyramorphix have been produced, the two main types being flat faced and pillowed.
