Hello all,

I proudly present my second mod - it has no name, but is a mod of a cube-for-you brand (the only brand?) 3x3x4. I think its fairly self-evident from the pictures what I did.

Ever since Tony Fisher's golden cube, I have loved the concept of a puzzle's solved state blocking other moves, and to make it "fully functional", the puzzle must be unsolved a little.

I know its no Oskar, Tony fisher or SmaZ creation, but it is still important to me as my first ever proper mod. :)

Will

Very nice! I like it a lot. Did Jack3434 or something like that make a similar puzzle? I can't remember. Nevertheless, yours looks beautiful. :)

I like that you made it cubic rather than a cuboid since C4U already have cubic 3x3x5 and 3x3x7's!

Nice. :D It same like this, the 3x3x4 wall cube style of Thomas's 4x4x5 wall cube

I think the name should be "wall cube"

Well, if the same process was applied to a 2x2x3, it would logically be a junior wall cube,
3x3x4 would then be a wall cube,
4x4x5 would be a master wall cube. Just by using the standard Rubik's naming system.

But "wall cube is already taken, so I have decided on The Brick :)

And thank you Andreas, very kind of you to say so. :D

Will

@traiphum,

Aargh, so I guess this puzzle isn't very special.

In fact its just another brick in the wall 8-)
