Tardis cube

Postby borginator2 » Wed Dec 17, 2008 5:11 am

I've finished my latest cube mod.  The Tardis Cube is done.  I used an eastsheen 5x5 for the mod.  I'm upping a youtube vid on it and a chance to look at my other cube mods.  I'll add it to this thread when it's uploaded.

heiowge is my old username - currently banned!  No it isn't my surname!

Glad you like it.  The tardis cube works exactly the same way as the eastsheen 5x5 frame it's built on.  The additional sculpting and paintwork is designed not to impede the motion of the cube - hence the reason it's not a cuboid like the real tardis.  The fact that the faces all appear similar only adds extra difficulty.  For example the white sign on the front door (only on one face!) makes the cube behave more like a picture cube - that centre may need rotating after solving!

Under my avatar is a web address.  It is r u b i k s m a s t e r .com (if I type it in without the spaces, it calles it banned advertiser!)  On that site, click forums.  Select the cube modification area.  There is a guide on there on how I made a rubiks borg cube, my tactile cube and the tardis cube.  The borg cube is the most detailed of the three guides.  I recommend you look at it first.

Thats how I modify a cube.  Others do more invasive mods, whereas my mods are merely aesthetic - designed to look good but not interfere with the internal workings of the cube.

Hey borginator2, just wondering HOW do you solve the TARDIS cube? Because to my understanding most of the pieces look exactly the same. Wouldn't that be confusing?

That's one of the thrills of solving it.  Not that I've ever done it.  I just like the look of it.

I was wondering what the picture was. There's no doubt about it, that's the Tardis. Good job.
