 Post subject: My Fisher CubePosted: Thu Aug 24, 2006 7:50 pm

I finally finished a Fisher Cube, after delaying it for like a month. Any comments? Note: This is the first mod that I actually feel comfortable showing. (i've made 2 so far, this included). Comments/tips will be greatly appreciatly. Thanks.

Also, I need help solving it: Look at the first picture; in the end of my solves, most of the time i end up with a situation like this and it takes me like 3-5 minutes to undo and redo everything with guess and check until i get it right. I think it has something to do with the algorithm i use to swap edges (on a 3x3x3, not fisher). Does anyone know how to solve or avoid something like this?

Thanks again.

Looks nice, It took me a moment to figure out how that parity was possible, but then I remembered that that piece is a center piece.

Solve the white or yellow side first and really focus on using algorithms that don't rotate the 4 centers that require proper orientation. I only know how to rotate it twice (X2 - X being a face [U D L R F B]), but there's a place that has all the algorithms to just rotate the centers.

Center orienting only on the left, Moves to acquire said rotation on the right.
M is the Middle slice (L&R). E is the equitorial slice (U&D). (I don't want to have to deal with cube rotations and notation.

[U2] - [(RL) U2 (R'L') U]2

[U' L] - [M'E'M] U [M'EM] U'

Any questions, just say and I'll try explaining better.
