# 3x3x3 Visualizer program?

#### N's-cvt

I was wondering if there are any online or executable programs that would allow me to create images for some of my alg sheets. If there are any please let me know, the only one I currently know of is cubecriders visualizer and I don't really know how to become proficient using it.
There was a post made with this same topic but guess what that was made 7 years ago so maybe there have been new programs created.

Visual cube, most reliable one imo, link: click
JavaScript port of VC, link: click
I think you can also take images from Cube Explorer.

Visual cube is excellent.

It has a mode for showing the top face and around that the n.th layer colors. That is very helpfull for OLL/PLL documentation.

But it also has one disadvantage: It can not generate flat images of all 6 sides! (so a picture like tnoodle shows for scrambles). This flat images are sometimes more helpfull than a 3D image if you need to see more than top face + its last layer.

@Everyone: N's-cvt already knows about VisualCube. It was mentioned in the first post. They are wondering if there is anything else.

For me, I like to draw my own images. I've used VisualCube a lot, but it becomes tedious. It is easier to just make your own in an image editing program and use a fill tool to change the colors.

Oh yeah, I forgot about the simple image editor.

For some alg sets, it can be annoying.
Oh for those, I do something else.
What I do is find another document that has those algs, the I use snipping tool to save it on my computer, and bop, put em where they belong.

I'm a mean person

but what if you have a completely new concept that no one has got the images for?

Well, that's ever happened to me, but something you could do is take anyone's top view, and draw black lines where the piece borders are, so the lines are not visible and above the borders, and use the bucket of paint.

It's hard to explain
You get a blank template of the top view and put the colors in with the bucket of paint.

Is your computer fine? I don't think paint is good for it

Umm, pretty sure you are being sarcastic, but if you aren't, I'm talking about the fill thing bucket thing you click

Sub coll()
'Macro code written by Alexander Ooms
Dim cell As Variant
Dim i As Integer
i = 1
'here you set the cell to look for the algs now set to a1 to a4
For Each cell In Range("A1:A4")
PicPath = "http://cube.crider.co.uk/visualcube.php?stage=coll&fmt=png&size=100&view=plan&case=" & cell.Value & ""
With ActiveSheet.Pictures.Insert(PicPath)
With .ShapeRange
.LockAspectRatio = msoTrue
.Width = 50
.Height = 50
End With
.Left = ActiveSheet.Cells(i, 5).Left
.Top = ActiveSheet.Cells(i, 5).Top
.Placement = 1
.PrintObject = True
End With
i = i + 5
Next cell
End Sub

Sub pll()
'Macro code written by Alexander Ooms
Dim cell As Variant
Dim i As Integer
i = 1
'here you set the cell to look for the algs now set to a1 to a4
