I saw this topic viewtopic.php?f=1&t=11001&start=50&hilit=deep

and donĀ“t understand exactly what a deep-cut puzzle is

I think is a puzzle .....not face turning, not edge turning or not corner turning...

I add some examples of my idea of DCP (DEEP-CUT PUZZLES)

Could you explain me ?

Deep-cut puzzles have cuts that go halfway through the puzzle, like the Skewb, 2x2, radiolarian 15, pentultimate, chopasaurus, which is the radiolarian 15 in dodecahedron form, or the 24 cube, etc. I hope this clears things up for you.

If I understand correctly, The rexcube is a "deeper-than-deep-cut" puzzle.
Master skewb has "deeper-than-deep-cuts" as well as shallow cuts.
Exactly deep-cut puzzles are: 2x2x2, skewb, little chop (24-cube), etc...

Consider it like this; a deep cut puzzle is a puzzle that gets directly split in half during particular turns (such as the skewb, the 2x2x2 and the master pyraminx when turned at appropriate layers).
A deeper than origin cut puzzle is a puzzle that looks ordinary, but the mechanism causes pretty much anything inside moves with one turn (e.g. the deeper madness and rototribute by oskar).

Despite a lack of consensus on what "deep cut" really is from a puzzle-theoretic point of view, this is not correct. Everyone agrees that a Rex Cube is not deep cut. The Master Skewb is also not deep cut. There is no argument on these points.

Regarding Depp Cut puzzles, the community consensus seems to be that those are the puzzles that look like this:
