I have plans to design up to a Deep Cut 7x7. Also I know the Deep Cut 3x3 is almost a container cube. If these puzzles allready exist please tell me so I don't waste money on prototypes :lol:

Very cool designs. The first one is basically a cubic Mental Block, which is a Fisher'd Skewb! I have no idea how to classify the other ones.

I thought it went good with the set. Atleast I didn't include a cubic 2x2x1 :lol:

The designs look really interesting! :) I'm having trouble imagining how the puzzles can be scrambled. The cuts are at weird angles, so I don't see how any of them would line up after a turn. Can you post a picture of one of them scrambled?

When I first thought of this idea I had the same problem. After rotating almost 180 degrees, it jumbles :mrgreen:

Most of these would be really easy to solve.

Wow those are pretty awesome! I would like to see the 4x4 or 5x5 in real life in some kind of video, to understand just how they would work!

Since the deep cut 3x3 is basically a 'fishered' skewb, I would say the deep cut 4x4 would have to be a fishered skewb+partial 24-cube. The deep cut 5x5 is a bit more difficult...

(Edit: on a side note, since the 3x3 is a skewb, is doesn't jumble, nor is it bandaged in any way. The 4x4 is a fishered and bandaged skewb+24-cube, so is modified and bandaged from a non-jumbling puzzle, so doesn't jumble. I can't say anything about the 5x5, I have to understand that one first :mrgreen: )

The Deep Cut 3x3 is either bandaged or jumbled unless I'm missing something. The Skewb only has 2 different types of pieces, the Deep Cut 3x3 has 3. Also I don't think it can be scrambled more then the second picture.

I am pretty sure that a cubic Mental Block would not have an evenly-spaced grid on its top and bottom faces. The Deep Cut 3*3*3 may resemble a Mental Block, but the cutting planes definitely intersect at different angles from a skewb.

Also, the Deep Cut 4*4*4's vertical slices are equivalent to a 2*2*1.

If any of these can be scrambled as is, they would have to jumble.

Only the deep cut 4x4 I believe can even be scrambled. However, I am working on Deep Cut Puzzle Series V 2 :mrgreen:
