A Void Cube with one layer hidden.

The Cubic Void 2x3x3 is a transformation of Katsuhiko Okamoto's Void Cube and is a concept influenced by the 2x3x3 puzzle.

The design and pieces of the puzzle bear resemblance to that of a 2x3x3 based on a 3x3x3 cube, and the building process, for the most part, remained identical. However some adaptations and compromises were necessary.
The biggest compromise came through not being able to make a proportional 2x3x3 and that the puzzle was refined to being cubic. A proportional Void 2x3x3 could not be achieved from a Void Cube, as the puzzle's mechanism is built into the pieces. Therefore, pieces cannot be cut down in size because doing so would interfere with the Void Cube's mechanism and result in a redundant puzzle. The puzzle therefore resembles the Zock Cube of Hidetoshi Takeji.

Sheets of polystyrene plastic sheet were used to make the extensions and epoxy sculpt was used to fill any visible joins. Each piece was then sanded and polished before the vinyl stickers were applied.
