In my last simulator yaps the 3x4x5 had a bug.
( the reason was that the (hole) center pieces the first 345 picture shows this situation )
Now the 3x4x5 works fine.

Now I programmed in Java. Each puzzle is with perspective and you can move the faces/cubies with the mouse.
I programmed an own graphics engine with BSP trees for this.

Ok I 'm not Bo Hu , but have a look to this program.

The following Puzzles are included:

Rubik's Cube 1x1x1 - 8x8x8
Crazy Cube 4x4x4 type II
Crazy Cube 3x3x3 8 Planets + Circle Cube
Megaminx
Cuboid 3x4x5
Square-1
Burr Cube


Try it.

Nice work, Andrea! It took a little getting used to, but I like it!
Do you have plans for more puzzles?

Andrea, thanks for the wonderful simulator. The interface is intuitive and the graphics look very nice. The Crazy 4x4 is one of my favourites and it will be nice to test out algorithms on the Square 1.

This is awesome! Never seen such easy-to-work-with simulator. Even your Rubik's cubes are better than in most other simulators.
Edit: I found out that your 4x4x6 probably doesn't work properly. When it is in position with 2x2 hole in top layer inner 4 squares move when moving first layer, but stay when moving second. I think it should be reversed. Or maybe both layers should move in parallel?

Hi Wojowu,

Perhaps this is important for understanding 446 and 345. Look to your real 446 or 345. If the inner 2x2x1 ( 2x1x1 on 345) is a hole. The base-sickers rotate with the outer ring of cubies. The second layer doesn't change the base sticker. Sorry, I read this posting to late.

Cheers,
Andrea
