Call me crazy, but over the past year I have tried to make every 4x4x4 bandaged variation I could think of. I have finally finished and plan on stopping at 19. Some of these are easy to solve others are very difficult. The only other variation I could think of was to make a Boob Cube, but I figured that was a complete waste of a 4x4x4 cube.

Here they are.

1x2x3
1x2x4
1x4x4
1x3x3
4x4x2
4x4x3
3x3x2
3x3x3
3x3x4
8 Colors
Bandaged Opposite Corners
2x2x2
2x2x2 Square-1 middle
2x2x1
2x2x3
2x2x4
211x211x211
2x3x4
2x3x4 Wall

Wow those look really cool. Good job with them. I don't really understand the very last one though. I can't see how it turns, if it even does. What did you use to fuse the cubies together?

You rotate that "center slice" down, and then you can turn a bunch more slices. Make sense?

you turn the 3rd row and bottom row over to the right and it lines up like the 2x3x4 next to it.

Ok I reread the title and there Eastsheen cubes not rubiks. I thought Rubiks would be a lot easier mechanism to work with but I'm mechanism expert or for that matter build anything at all.

On a different note I always had a idea for someone to build me a 1st layer of cubies then the 2 layer of your wall cube for the row then 3rd layer 3 cubies bandaged together and finally have the last row 1x4x4 so that you only have 4 pieces. To bad it won't work because of the 3rd layer.

I wonder how many other playable possiblity are out there that you didn't think of yet(mine not included because it doesn't move). :D :) 8-) :wink:

Don't you mean to turn the 2nd and the 4th row or turn the 1st and 3rd row from the top.

I used Eastsheen cubes over Rubik's for 2 reasons. Mefferts offered FREE shipping and you could get the DIY 4x4x4 cubes blank with the stickers NOT attached. I hate removing stickers from cubes. :)

I love the second one in picture 4, the bandaged opposite corners. I have never seen it. It's really awesome but crazy. I bet its so hard to solve when it's really mixed up. Mixing it up is a lot timeconsuming i guess.

Hi :-)

I had recently the same idea as the second one on picture 4 also.
See this thread. However, mine was ugly. I will build it again later bandaging properly 8-)

Yes, it's quite terrrible to solve. Didn't work out how yet. So many setup moves to do what i want all the time :oops:

Who will have a go at making all bandaged variations of 5x5x5? Not that all variations will be beautiful ...

Well, there are hundreds of possible ways to bandage a 4x4x4, but many of them are either too easy or impossible... Still, it's a very good collection, as he has most/all of the interesting cuboids as well as some other cool puzzles. I'd definitely want to own those cubes if I had the money and space...

Sorry none are for sale. I did get the stickers from cubesmith and made them myself.

Doubleyou, please share what idea you have. I would like to see it.

It is nice to see people searching and reading the older posts. There are a lot of hidden gems in the archives.
