Diagonal of Squares

This page shows possible placements of the solids with diamonds on two opposite 6-piece corners and the rest squares, a "stripe" of squares.

Almost of necessity, all placements have some fairly symmetric solutions.

For the inverse pattern of diamonds and squares, see corners3.html.

The solutions presented below are the ones of maximum symmetry for each placement of the solids, as indicated in the table above.



For example, this one, with either 93.3% or 95.8% symmetry,
depending how you count adjacent same-color segments.
