I don't know how i came up with this idea, but i did, and decided to build it, but not well. I built it really sloppily, but it turned out well, or at least better than i thought. I ran into the problem of realizing that a fisher cube does not have the exact smae dimensions as a normal cube, but a fixed that with apoxie sculpt. Haven't scrambled it yet, and i don't plan to.

OO nice, it's like a Square - 1 but with squares! Another job well done Ryan.

Another new design. Great Job. A combo of a fisher cube and a regular cube.

The solution is similar to a domino with a center layer parity correct?

That would make a lot of sense, basically a domino with an extra layer.

I've often wondered about the possibility of bandaging a 3x3 to make it into a relative of the Square-1. Nice to see it in the flesh! The end result looks pretty damn good to me

Fisher's Golden Cube is the same. When it is solved, the mechanism is not lined up.

Ryan,

What an example of brilliance and simplicity! For that reason I'd like to nickname it, "Elegance"
