    Cool! This use to be very popular with old cubes, they called them fusion cubes. I hope is wasn't an aolong V1!

    I dont know I'm probably going to post it in the cube identification thread, but hey.
    So I did an AO5 with that cube, and it beat my AO5 PB.

    What exactly are the points of the florian and 48 edge point mod, (if this is the florian mod) and rounded centers? increase corner-cutting?

    When doing a florian mod, is it advisable to use a file or sandpaper?

    sandpaper if you want it to go faster, file for more precision.

    Guess I'll use sandpaper then, since it's just a megaminx.

    I wanna get started modding, what could I make?

    Hi guys, so I wanna get started with modding, and I don't know what to get started with, I wanna make a puzzle that would be quite cheap to make. I'm not looking to make a 3x3x5 because I just bought one by Calvins puzzle, they sent me two so maybe I could mod that into something? By the way, my dad works at a hardware store so I could probably get some tools from there cheap. Can anyone recommend a puzzle that I could make?

    A 3x3x5 fisher or windmill cube would be awesome.

    Modding cube?

    I want to make a couple of new puzzles out of 3x3. And all of the tutorials that I watch seem to use the old rubiks 3x3 that do not have the caps. Which cube could mostly resemble that, and where can I buy it from.
    Thanks!

    What would be required to make a fisher cube out of my 3x3x5? Would it require me to buy more cubes?

    Washer Mod

    Hey Cubers have any of you people tried putting a washer under the center piece(at the bottom) and just above the core?, so that the washer is outside the center piece, and above the core. I tried it on my Yj Sulong, and it made it much faster.

    Even the Guanlong became a lot faster.
    Try it out, and let me know.

    Thanks.

    This is how it looks like:

    Best mod to improve performance: get another cube. Seriously. Almost any other cube is better.

    Shape mod: try some sticker mods to start with. Googling cube mods should bring up some cool mods as well.

    Hellraiser Cube mod.

    Hi, could not find one so decided to make my own Rubiks cubes based on the Hellraiser pussle box.
    I used blank rubiks cubes and printed stickers with transparent overlay stickers to keep them from fading.
