I present my New puzzle: 4D-Time Cube

0. this is first Screw-Twisty-Puzzle, Oscar and Alex Polonsky recently published Screw Cube (but designed later): http://www.shapeways.com/model/687108/screw-cube.html
I could publish my first prototype in the beginning of the year, but I did not like the quality of the puzzle
1. author of the idea Mike Armbrust (PuzzleMaster6262), but the idea of ​​a mechanism, ​​name and stickers - my
2. inspiration here (Elevator cube): viewtopic.php?p=224874#p224874 , everything is done with the permission of the author's ideas ...
the other guy showed his idea of ​​the mechanism, but I already had my own drawings and parts: viewtopic.php?f=9&t=22770
here is the first attempt: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kDbLmX4ky9Q , and first prototype: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DQn-b3rtoj4
it is a whole year of work ... this is one of my most difficult puzzles ...
3. this is analogue Сonstrayned cube (Tomz) and Quarter Cube (Okamoto), but IMHO much more elegant... You can build a lot of difirent puzzles
4. moving centers when screw ends, they block the face and it is not turning on ...
5. movement centers creates more freedom to move elements to the existing 3rd, so called 4D puzzle cube, and since with the 4th dimension of time, are often associated, so I decided to compare the various centers of different time intervals during the day

about hands: hour and minute hands indicate the freedom of movement, second hand for beauty.
face turn clockwise leads to rise the center, and counterclockwise to subsidence - if it is of course inherent in the configuration screw

center types:
0. free / 360dg, without threads and blocks (no clock dial) - Yellow
1. 3:00 / +90dg, single-clockwise rotation, with the rise of the center - orange
2. 6:00 / +180 dg, double turn clockwise, with the rise of the center - Brown
3. 9:00 /-90dg, single turn to counter-clockwise, with the lowering of the center - green
4. 9:15 /-90dg, +90 dg, single turn to counter-clockwise, with the lowering of the center, as well as single-clockwise rotation, with the rise of the center - blue
5. 12:00 / 0dg, full block, all the arrows on the line, everything stopped, the night in the yard - black

Enjoy

If I got it right
this cube is equivalent to TomZs Constrained Cube with respect to solving. Isn't it?

But you introduced a very clever way to show the orientation of the faces.

You are right!


but when you solve Constrayned cube (also for the std 3*3), you do not have to think about the final orientation of the centers
with this puzzle you need to think about it, it adds extra dificulty ...

The screwing design is very innovative. Puzzle itself is challenging.

But for "Constrained Cube" type puzzle, we always have to return some pieces to its original position right? So the in and out of the center pieces won't affect too much forwhile solving...Amd I right about this?

when you solve to Constrained Cube end-orientation centers may differ from the start-orientation.
When you solve to 4D-Cube you can not ignore the orientation centers ...

Although I hardly understand it, it is very interesting.

2) Dinner Cube (15:00 /+90 dg). all the centers of the equal
3) Supper Cube (full day - set). all centers are different (all 6 types)
