Is there a wheeling program where I could create a 3 if 3 of 15 numbers abbreviated wheel from a full 15 number wheel that has been filtered and reduced?

Problem is once a full wheel has been reduced it's no longer a full wheel.   What ever you end up with you can check it with CoverMaster to see if the 3 if 3 guarantee exists and if not it can add a few lines until it does.  It also allows you to mark any combinations you don't want replaced or changed and it will work around those combinations even if you optimize the wheel.

A full 15 number pick-6 wheel has 5005 combinations and abbreviated wheels are just another way to to filter it so we have a more practical way to play those 15 numbers. A 3 if 3 of 6 abbreviated wheel filters the 5005 combinations into 31 combos but the sets of combos are not unique because the order we place the 15 numbers into the wheel is irrelevant.  The wheels on LP give us the option of placing the 15 numbers into any order and still get the same win guarantee. Though it's possible to to examine the results to check for things like even/odd, high/low distribution, there are 30030 different orders we can use to create one set of 31 combos and it could take a long time before we found the right distribution.

I'm asking if there is a program where I can filter the 5005 combos down to 500 combos and then extract 31 of those combos giving me a 3 if 3 win guarantee.

    CoverMaster can generate a 34 lines 3 if 3 pick6 wheel unoptimized almost instantly that cover all 455 combinations of threes in a group of 15 numbers, then it would be up to you to optimize it to a 31 line wheel with the help of CoverMaster.
