Awesomely fantastic.
Is this the first 10x10x10 of any kind? I seem to have a vague memory of a pillowed one but not sure.

You guys are an amazing team!
I'd love to know about the mechanism if you're willing to share. How is the blocking of the middle layer accomplished?
Congratulations you guys!

Tony asked me to make a checkerboard pattern. I tried it and did my very best.

First I lost a lot of stickers,
than I lost the orientation
then I stopped taking video.

Here you can see the result:

Jason, for details I hope Greg can deliver the informations you asked for.

He used the mechanism against blocking TomZ has implemented first is his 4x4x6 I think.

Here is a picture of a WIP Flat 12x12x12:

Oops sorry, I completely forgot that on an even order cube it's not as straightforward.

Nice work Greg.
For this kind of cubes, i will however prefer pillowed version, and I am still waiting for V-cubes to buy them.

I wonder if a mass-production of a flat cube like this would be considered as KO ?

Very much so. Going the 17x17x17 way would be an alternative though.

If it has a similar V-mech it would be, at least that was the case with the Cubic 7x7.

I think you should try ironing the stickers for pieces that small.
I'm glad it turned out so great =)
