Hello, everyone! I’m Linxiao Xu from China. This is my first topic in the TP forum. Today I’d like to present my latest mod--HT Edges Only Cube.

As you can see, this is a 3*3 mod which combine the concept of “edges only” and “half-truncated”. It’s quite a simple mod, and I guess it’s good for a beginner.

Obviously, the cube can change its shape. Personally, I do like the “windmill” pattern.

Also the cube becomes even more interesting as four of the corner pieces are hided under the extensions of the edge pieces. (Please look at the solved state 1 picture.) They appear and disappear when you are trying to solve the cube. By the way, the color of the corner is the same as that of the opposite face. (Do I make any sense?)

Here are the pictures. I hope you can enjoy it!
