All of us know a mechanical puzzles .Like , for en example , a 3x3 rubik's cube. .But , do we know what kind of mechanism inside it? Some people maybe can know it by looking, but some others not. and how about a mechanism of a pyraminx? a Square-1?, or a Skewb?We also can't always depend on the internet. You can't always find it. Some who are risk taker maybe can break the cube and know it , but how about the other? Here , I wnt to show you some of the puzzle that has an unique mechanisms.
And then I want to ask you , can you help me for any tips / tutorial , how to play these puzzle? picture 2( left to right , and row top(1) -bottom)
1st row :rainbow cube , 4x4 mirror blocks, mastermorphinx
2nd row : The turning face octahedron, crazy 3x3x2, lengthened windmill x pattern
3rd row ; the Super Square-1 , Hexagonal Prism ,and Star skewb
Step 1: Cube Mechanisms - the Windmill Cube and the Super Square-1
The windmill cube is named based on it's pattern .It uses a 3x3 rubik mechanism.one of the member create it from a 3x3 rubik's cube. You can check it out. The mechanism is placed just like the orinary 3x3 ribik cube , but in other direction.
The Fisher cube also using a 3x3 mechanism.Unlike the windmill cube , We can play the fisher cube just like playing a 3x3 rubiks cube.( but you must find the right position)
The super Square-1 is a "Brother" from the Square -1 . The Square 1 consist 3 layers. top and bottom layers ( 8 60' corner and 30' edge).The middle layer is trapezoid -shaped piece.Both of the Square-1 and Super Square-1 has a same mechanism , but the Super Square 1 has additionals "Ridges"..Both only has one screw in the middle of the mechanism...
The last is the 3x3x2 crazy cube. It's using a 3x3 rubik cube mechanism , but with a little modification.I can't post it here because the photo is bad( oops) and it has too many small parts-I'm so sorry..ok?
Step 2: Skewb Mechanisms-Skewb Cube and Skewb Star Mechanisms
* if you don't wnt to take the risk don't break it.If you want to cross it , well...
ps: sorry for the last pic , i forgot to rotate it...
Step 3: 14 Sides!-Rainbow Cube Mechanism
The mechanism in it, just like the 3x3 cube , has a rod that comes out from it., and the centerpiece at the end of the rod.The core itself has a shape like a ball.see pic num 2 note.
The megaminx , also has this " Kind" of mechanism(The 'ball', 'ar' ,and caenters part).
