# 300x300 Rubik's cube solve - World record attempt #2

I have started another world record attempt. This time, I will be attempting to solve a 300x300 Rubik's cube.

I'm expecting the solve to take about 126 hours solve time. In real time, this will probably take 60 ~ 70 days to complete, depending on the amount of work I'm able to do each day.

Current progress, at ~4 hours:

Wow impressive, is this an individual effort, or a group effort like the 256x256 project?

Does the big NxN sim software record the move in notation as well, making it easier to have a written reconstruction.

This solve will probably be an individual effort. I did ask a few people if they wanted to join in, but they refused me.

Yes.

What method do you use to assemble these large cubes?

I’m pretty sure its edges, then 3x3 stage (with parities) then do all of the centers with comms, so the cage method.

Thanks for the info, I really wasn't sure which method it was.

I will learn this method to use it with huge cubes.

No, edges are done after the 2nd center. But even if that was correct, it's not a "real" description of the method because the thing that makes the method good is exactly *how* you solve the centers.
