# Baiocchi Figures for Polycubes

A *Baiocchi figure* is a figure
formed by joining copies of a polyform and having the maximal
symmetry for the polyform's class.
For polycubes, that means cubic symmetry.
Claudio
Baiocchi proposed the idea in January 2008.
Baiocchi figures first appeared in Erich Friedman's
Math Magic for that month.
Here are minimal known Baiocchi figures for polycubes
of orders 1 through 5.
Not all these solutions are uniquely minimal.
