a(6) has 143 digits and a(7) has 207 digits.
The Cornerturning Octahedron is a regular octahedron puzzle in the style of Rubik's Cube. The rotational axes of the pieces are parallel to the lines connecting a pair of opposite vertices. In comparison, the rotational axes of the Faceturning Octahedron are perpendicular to the faces. As a result, the only rotation of the Cornerturning Octahedron of size 2 is the trivial rotation of the tips (it is not the same of the Skewb Diamond, the Faceturning Octahedron of size 2). For n >= 3, see the Michael Gottlieb link below for an explanation of the term a(n).

FORMULA

a(n) = 6^(16*n+72) * (24!)^(2*n6) * a(n3) for n >= 6.
a(n) = 4096 * A309111(n) for n >= 2.


EXAMPLE

See the Michael Gottlieb link above.


PROG

(PARI) a(n) = if(n==1, 1, 4096 * (if(n==2, 1, my(A = 258369126400); if(!(n%3), A * 6^(8*n^2/3+16*n19) * (24!)^(n^2/3n), A * 560 * 6^(8*n^2/3+16*n43/3) * (24!)^(n^2/3n1/3)))))
