No, I was inquiring into the possibility of such a puzzle. I meant to
send privately to Roice because I didn’t want to pressure him but I
screwed up.

I’m pretty sure there isn’t a true {7,3} IRP though I hope that I am
wrong. I could however imagine a MagicTile version in which a {7,3}
texture could be mapped onto the VT {3,7} IRP surface to approximate
one. Seems doable though the real way to do this sort of thing might be
to map it onto a minimal curvature surface with the same topology. The
IRPs are interesting because they can be constructed using flat
polygonal faces but there are all sorts of crazy puzzles that become
possible without that constraint.
