While the forum was down the past few days, I made three mods. My cubesmith order finally came too! So I made them and stickered the edges only cube, fused cube and a half truncated cube. They all turn smoothly. At the same time, I am still stickering my Rubiks Gem 2x2, so I am going to post another topic of it sticker once it is done. Also, am I allowed to sell the fused cube?

Very nice mods!

I still haven't tried making a fused cube, mostly because I just haven't gotten around to it.

How do they all turn? Did you just plate the edges-only cube, or did you fill and cap them as well?

You should try making one! Its really easy. They all turn smoothy. I just plated the edges only cube. I used soft flimpsy cards at that time because I dont have any neither phone cards nor plastic sheets! I did not fill it, because those flimpsy cards are weird as they are covered with this film so they keep peeling..

How do you make a fused cube? Because I want to make one to go with my fused void (which I haven't made. yet. I am 100% sure it will work, but I need cubes.) BAck on topic: Very nice mods! Did you replace the stickers on the fused cube as well? because that would have been a waste. On the edge-only, did you just deeply truncate the corners? I'm not abig fan of half-trunc cubes, but yours looks pretty clean. You made all of THAT in a week?

A fused void? Now THAT would be cool. But I don't see how it could work, if the edge of one cube is supposed to be fused to a non-existent center piece of the other cube ?!! :?

...unless you fuse them via only one corner piece?

I can't see why not, I don't think anyone reserves rights for this, or really claims it as thier own anymore.

Nope. The fused cube's sticker is painted already and they do not have stickers on them :). The edges only is basically a cornerless cube but in side was lubricated so that it will turn smooth. And it is not really a week, it is more than that. I just round it up :lol: .
