If I try to make a bigger Rubik's cube out of wood, and even though I use the same size of magnets, would that still be possible?

Rubik's Cube Competition

Up until recently i haven't thought much of a Rubik's Cube, other than it seemed impossible to solve.. but i found mine about a month ago and am getting almost addicted to it. I was surfing around on instructables, and came across many different 'ibles on how to solve them. So i was wondering who on instructables can solve a Rubik's Cube, and how fast?Here are some tips for those of you who can't solve a Rubik's Cube:https://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-Solve-a-Rubik_s-Cube_1/https://www.instructables.com/id/How-To-Solve-A-Rubik_s-Cube!/https://www.instructables.com/id/Solve-a-Rubiks-Cube!-Improved!/https://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-Solve-a-Rubiks-Cube/https://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-solve-a-Rubiks-cube-ANIMATED/https://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-Solve-%22The-Cube%22-%2b-Tips-and-Tricks-For-the-/

Rubiks Cube Blueprints?

Hello Instructables Community,      I am looking for the blueprints needed to make a functional 3 x 3 Rubik's Cube. I'm not so worried about the outside appearance, (It's just a cube divided into 9 square sections for each face,) but I am looking more for something that shows the inner dimensions and shapes of the Rubiks cube: the little "nub" type bits that are on the inside of each of the smaller cubes and the shape of the inside inside structure that looks like this. Any pointers would be much appreciated

Question by dragon4181    |  last reply

How difficult/easy would it be to embed LEDs into a Rubik's Cube so that when solved, each individual face lights up?

Possible ideas: 1) individual circuits: one for each color/face. (if one face is solved it lights up even when rest of cube is scrambled) 2) one circuit throughout connecting all pieces. (this way it wouldn't glow unless entire cube was solved) Using some sort of conductive material in between the smaller cubes to complete circuit(s). Button cell batteries to power LEDs?

I have a rubik's cube, and I want to lubricate it. I have heard that the best, reliable lubricant would be silicon spray, but I have a lot of silicon heatsink compound that I'd like to use....would it make much difference? I also have WD-40...but that supposedly melts the cube, right?

How do you solve a quad-cube?

The quad-cube is four 2x2 cubes stuck corner to corner.  I have not been able to find any instructions or algorithms on how to solve one.  Whenever I try to use 2x2 algorithms there is one corner that doesn't match up.  Making an instructable on this would be a great idea too because it's the 30th anniversary of Rubik's cubes.

Any of you guys want to learn how to do the Rubik's Cube?

Well, I recently became addicted to "cubing" all over again.  I have made some instructions for my friends, do any of you guys want me to post instructions?  I have looked around, and none of the other people that have posted instructions on here posted very good instructions.  Also, they kinda suck at it, no offense :)  Most of these people solve in about 2 minutes, my average is under 30 seconds.  If any of you guys wanna learn, just leave me a comment! Here are some instructions I made for my friends, I will make an ible when I have time: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=MVN5J8G4

Hey. I was looking for some small, or even surface mount, bi-color LEDs. I also, however, need a wide range of colors, as I am doing a Rubik's cube type thing. I was contemplating the idea of Tri-color LEDs, and having the 6 colors be RGBCMY, although that may over-complicate things. Thanks for your help :-)

Take a tour of Instructables!

There's so much cool stuff here, I thought people (new and old) might enjoy a guided tour. Instructables is a web-based documentation platform where passionate people share what they do and how they do it, and learn from and collaborate with others. These awesome people make it all happen. The seeds of Instructables germinated at the MIT Media Lab as the future founders of Squid Labs built places to share their projects and help others; more history is here. Instructables is the combination of a number of things. First, there are the Instructables themselves. These are step-by-step descriptions of things people want to share. They are educational, inspirational, and often replicable. The Dachshund Wheel chair is my favorite. A passionate user shared something close to his heart, and has had a positive impact on many lives.There's the whimsical: Magnetic Acrylic Rubik's Cube. And, of course, the whimsical inspired by the whimsical: Magnetic Rubik's Dice Cube. And, the plain ridiculous: How to Get a Free Yacht and its complete saga. A cornerstone of what makes Instructables great is the comments. People ask questions, give praise, or offer improvements; this sets up a conversation between the project author and the community. Check out this cookie recipe where the author responds to a question about substitutions for someone who wants cookies now.Many of the best Instructables have won one of our contests: Show Your Heart Valentine's Day Contest, Holiday Homemade Gifts contest, Take Thanksgiving to the Next Level contest, Halloween Project contest, and The Magnet Challenge. Instructables has a lively forum for opinion and discussion. Really smart and talented people hang out here. Have a look at a forum topic on water tunnel testing complete with Reynold's number equations.Finally, what really makes Instructables great is the community surrounding it. These are passionate people that want to share what they did and how they did it. In recognition of this, Instructables won the 2006 Wired Rave Award for industrial design. Instructables gave power to the individuals so they could positively impact the world. Also, check out some of the news articles about Instructables.
