yeah but this isn't a mod to fix popping, its a mod to eliminate the clicking and misalignment of the middle layer. It may or may not help with popping, but I don't see any clear reason as to why this would significantly help prevent popping.If you have ever tried to speedsolve a 6x6, you know that pops can be deadly.
Well I think the clicking mechanism causes most of the pops to begin with. So then it would make sense that pops would reduce taking out the clicking. It still pops every now & then, but not as much as before...but I don't see any clear reason as to why this would significantly help prevent popping.
I explain how it all works at 7:30 mark in the video....i don't know what the PIN will be doing... why put it in the first place...??? any idea... the modder never explained for some reason what it was used for...???
I could be wrong, again, but I dont think you can keep the clicking while getting rid of popping. memyself&pi's first mod will get rid of the alignment issue and leave the clicking, but it wont help with popping because you're not sanding down the pieces. I think less popping comes with eliminating the clicking by sanding not just eliminating the alignment problem, but again I could be wrong.I might have a go at this if I can't stop the popping any other way (I would like to remove the misalignment issue, but I do like the clicking so I'm reluctant to sand the inner pieces ^^)
I agree. It reminds me of the way Artemis stole the fairy theif painting in Artemis Fowl: the Opal Deception (awesome book)
That is a very good book. I hope to have the time and motivation to do this mod soon. I love my 6x6 but the popping and overall feel of the cube causes me to not solve it very much. This would make it my new favorite cube.I agree. It reminds me of the way Artemis stole the fairy theif painting in Artemis Fowl: the Opal Deception (awesome book)
Well mine does feel a little loser then then the V-Cube 7 & 5. But awhile ago I put Vaseline in the cube. When I cleaned it out later, it has a little whiteness in it. So it dissolved the plastic a little. Also, I scraped down all the mold lines with an exacto knife. I'm sure this made it loose to begin with.How stable does the cube feel with this mod?
lol, I know. But I spent a long time thinking this whole thing through!
Yeah, just like Ellis said, I dought it would do any good to just remove the misalignment & not get rid of the clickyness to reduce the popping.I would like to remove the misalignment issue, but I do like the clicking so I'm reluctant to sand the inner pieces
That might work. I don't see any harm in trying.My intention is to remove the popping by sanding the stalks of the corners where they get under the centers and cause them to pop out. I might also sand down the pointy part of the centers if that helps.
