It's basically like solving all the edges of the tuttminx. So easy A B A' B' sequences should work perfectly fine. You just need to know your color sceme. If you don't, tri to get it and see if a parity of only two edges appears. In that case you will have to mirror your color sceme and start over. I don't know about the way of stickering it the way that three triangles "form a face" as far as parities are concerned. I suppose the same thing can happen.

The hexagonal faces can only turn by 120° but it will still work the same.

This puzzle has only easy short sequences but it is a pain to solve because of the color sceme and the way the shape and colors deceive you all the time. It will take concentration and time.

I don't have one though. I can only imagine. I hope you will be able to find a starting point. And remember your color sceme because if not, the start will take a looong time.
