Galvagni Figures for Hexacubes

A hexacube is a solid made of six cubes joined face to face. On this page, tiles are identified with their mirror images.

A Galvagni figure is a figure that can be tiled by a polyform in more than one way—a kind of self-compatibility figure.

The solutions shown are not necessarily unique. The gray hexacube has no known solution. If you find one, please write.
