I built two ff Lego Rubik's cubes, a 1x2x3 and a 2x2x3.

You can view the design in 3d - or even rebuild it - by downloading the "Lego Digital Designer".

I started building the 1x2x3 some weeks ago and tried to make it as small as possible. The finished one has a cubie size of 6 nubs per side. I then build a second, unproportional but smaller 1x2x3 and made a 1x2x2 of it.
The 1x2x2 has just been extended to the 2x2x3.
The 1x2x3 turns very well and is "fingertrickable", the 2x2x3 is really big(8 nubs per side) and much harder to handle. It locks because of the many pieces inside. But compared to the 3x3x3 I found in the Internet both cuboids are great.
I will post a video soon... :D

Edit: The 1x2x3 has not been completely uploaded yet.

I remember a while ago I made a LEGO 1x2x3, but I never bothered posting it... :oops:
Ah well, I guess everything looks okay. Not that I would need to buy any LEGOs to make this :mrgreen:

This is the fully functional Lego 1x2x5:

(I also built a smaller version, but it sometimes breaks)

I'm building a 2x2x5 in holidays. I will try to upload a video later...

Awesome bump.

So, 2.5 years later I finished making a second version of a 2x2x3 made of Lego. It was quite hard to make and I failed several times (which might sound weird considering it's just Lego), but I'm glad it's finally done!

I was wondering if you can put the instructions on www.Twistypuzzles.com museum since Lego stopped sending out the instructions with the parts. Now Lego just has a museum.

I have instructions for the "mini" 1x2x3 on my Youtube chanel: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bLCLnZj6LmA
For the 2x2x3, I could proably upload the instructions that the Lego Digital Designer creates, but they're really weird. I might make a video eventually ;)

Although such instructions would be worth to be documented I think the articles section would be the place they belong.
Long time no change there ...
