A doctrinaire shape-variant of a 3x3x3 with Windmill Cube faces on all six sides.

The 'Six Windmills Cube' is a doctrinaire shape variant of a 3x3x3 that looks like a Windmill cube in mid-turn on all six sides.

The face shape is that of the classic 'Windmill Cube' by Katsuhiko Okamoto.

A standard 3x3x3 cube was cut with a razorsaw and the edges and corners reconstructed with plastic sheet. Stickers wrap around these changes and from some angles it is possible to see pieces from all six sides. The solution is as for a 3x3x3 and the shape does not hinder the solve.

The nearest puzzle to this in the museum is the 2012 sticker-mod 'Windmill in the Cube' by Andrey Yerashkevich.

The cuts into the edge and side pieces are shallow enough for this shape-mod design to work on higher order puzzles although the angle of 'rotation' of the 'windmill face' reduces with higher order puzzles and the illusion effect is less pleasing.

Edge length: 57 mm (standard cube)
Edge length: 46 mm (windmill edges)
The weight is typical for a standard 3x3x3.
