Hello,

This puzzle was made with a method first discovered by Jared here:

http://twistypuzzles.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=18907&start=0

but as far as I know, it hasn't been made yet (so excuse me if it has already been posted :oops: ):

The steps:

1. Get a WitEden crazy cube and a bunch of cubies

2. Unblock the circle centers just sanding a bit:

Image

Image

Image


3. Glue cubies where neccesary

Image

4. Complete stickering with 2nd set of witeden stikers :P

Image

5. And play! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:




Hmmm OK and a piece of advice, in case you also have this idea for getting a bunch of cubies:

Image


And that is all!!! :D

PM with an offer if you are interested in a 3x3x5, silver extended 8-)

This has got to be the easiest way to make a FF proportional 3x3x5.
It cant be anything but smooth! Nice one!

Very nice. I may have to make one of these when I get a couple of these Crazy 3x3x3s.

Did the second set of stickers come with the puzzle? Also, what's the puzzle that you showed where you got the cubie from?

Can you post a video?
I can't seem to see the pictures (which happens with a lot of pictures on this site by the way)
I would really like to see this.

I'm guessing this method could also be applied to making a Cross Cube. (And Cross Megaminx actually.) Can I ask how you made the extention cubies? They look very well made.

About the movement of this cube, my original witeden crazy cube locked a lot in the turning of no circle faces, so I had to sand many internal parts to make it feel smoother. A MF8 mercury will turn probably better.
On the other hand, the witeden cube came with two sets of stickers, so I only needed exte stickers for white and yellow faces.

About cubies, I finally got them from a 3x3x4, as I didn't want to fill any holes at all. It would have been cheaper and better to find a cheap extended 3x3x5 5.7 cm sized, but I didn't...

Yes, it's realy the easyest way to make 335. :)
I also have this idea, and have talk about it with Witeden some days before.
But I don't know whether he put his mind on it ...

Now all we need is for someone to make a Crazy 3x3x4 and we can do the same to make a FF 3x3x6. :D

Nice way to make it!

With the same way, you can make the 3x3x4 too.
Just you need to start from a Super Domino!

So does that mean you can get a Black Crazy 3x3, free up all the center pieces, add 54 single 1x1 cubies on each circle and have 3x3x5 on the x y and z axis?

Would a FF 3x3x7 be able to be made with a "Master-Crazy 3x3x3" using this technique if one theoretically existed?

Ooh, I hope this will be mass produced soon. I would lend itself nicely to 3x3x6 and 3x3x7 mods.

I just realized that in stead of a crazy 3x3x4 to make a 3x3x6...would it be possible to put two crazy 3x3x3 together (glue the "crazy" parts like the 1x1 cubies) to get a 3x3x6?

No. If you simply glued 2 crazy 3x3s together along the circles, you would still not be able to turn along the long sides (180 degree turn on a 3x3x4)
