Video: How does a Speed Cube work? (Fast Rubik's Cube))

One of my very first YouTube videos was on the Rubik's Cube so this was a fun trip down memory lane! I want to show the mechanism of the cube but also give a general idea of how you'd solve one. Hopefully I didn't confuse too many viewers😮

In blender I wrote an addon to help me animate it. It would take a cube algorithm like this one: RUR'U'R'FRF', and automatically create the animation on whichever cube was selected. This saved so much time! I could also directly input the algorithm while following online guides. Virtually solving a cube was very satisfying.

I also created a geometry nodes setup to help me create whatever size of Speed Cube that I want just by changing a number. Very useful stuff! It would have been very tedious to do without Geometry Nodes.

Thanks for watching!
