I've made a cube simulator for Windows which allows customised images on the faces. You can therefore use it as a super cube when images are used or a normal cube otherwise. It's not fully tested so if you find any bugs please tell me. Tell me what you think.

Here are some captures.

It looks nice, but:
I prefer Walter's site / Cube Twister program:

Of course It can only simulate up to 7x7x7 cube, but it is more than enough for me.

Walter's simulator looks good although I can't see how to rotate the whole cube. I like the explode feature though. I think mine can do everything that one can do with the extra functionality of image faces and larger cubes. One thing that I don't like is that you can't change the layer turning speed and the default it a bit slow.
[Edit: OK, I found out how to rotate the cube by dragging away from the cube. I think right mouse dragging is faster since you don't have to keep moving the cursor away from the cube and back.

does anyone know of a simulator where you can do cuboids? anyway, that looks nice, but I already have too many simulators on my PC.

Here's one for a 4x4x5

This is a good idea though. I could probably add support for this in my program quite easily and make it possible to set the size of each dimension from 2 to 50.

I've made some additions to this program and I'd like some people to test it and tell me what you think. It now supports keyboard control using the number pad. More information about the controls can be found in the about box in the program.
