Baiocchi Figures for Polyominoids

A Baiocchi figure is a figure formed by joining copies of a polyform and having the maximal symmetry for the polyform's class. For polyominoids, 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 3,2-polyominoids of orders 1 through 3. Not all these solutions are uniquely minimal.
