    CaDiCaL SAT Solver

    You'd probably end up with thousands of variables and tens / hundreds of thousands of constraints. You'd assign each variable a number, then feed the whole mess of constraint equations into an off-the-shelf SAT solver like Cadical, then interpret the solver's results in terms of puzzle piece positions.
