We made force cubes

<2022-09-11 Sun>

Yesterday Josh made 6 force cubes from 6 regular 3x3 stikerless cubes. The process was very interesting, so I decided to record it here.

First, we prepared six regular 3x3 IDENTICAL STICKERLESS cubes:


Then we took them apart into many kinds of pieces: cores, center caps, corners, edges.


Cores

Center Caps

Corners

Edges

Then, we sorted the center caps by color and put each group onto a core respectively. After that we got this:


Single Colored Cores

The next work was to sparate the corner pieces and edge pieces into smaller parts:


Separated Corners

Separated Edges

and reassemble them into single colored corner/edge pieces:


Single Colored Corners

Single Colored Edges

At last, we assembled the force cubes:

And, Josh also got some other ideas, checkerboard cubes which can never be scrambled and sandwich cubes:


Other Cubes

That's pretty much it, by the way, Josh has a big collection of cubes which is listed here.
