You tryin out Nautilus?
Great solve btw

Yeah I think it's better than I originally thought. Curious what's been developed for shell (I imagine the main approaches are Roux FB into 2x2x2, Petrus 2x2x3 into F2L pair, and maybe Mehta FB+ 3QB + corner?)

The main approach is FB into 222, then I proposed an alternate approach if the FB is bad, where you solve a 222 in dbl and then add the dFL pair to it, which makes a FB+DB edge, then you finish the shell with the dbR square. 223 + F2L pair feels more like Petrus-APB honestly. I did propose a similar thing to Mehta FB + 3QB + corner, where you solve a Mehta FB in Dl minus the DF edge, so its more like a square in Dbl with a corner in DFL attached to it, then you solve 2 E slice edges and put them on the left, and then finish shell. This does make it easier to to pseudo stuff, although I personally don't use this technique. I mostly stick with FB+222 and 222+dFL+dbR.

I main Nautilus, I'm the first user besides Athefre, the inventor, and I currently hold the Nautilus Unofficial World Record Single of 6.89 seconds (reconstruction here). I am the fastest Nautilus user, although that doesn't really say much because there are only like 2-3 users.
I'm starting this Nautilus Example Solve Thread to give Nautilus some more exposure.

Thanks for starting this thread! I'm quite interested in Nautilus, since I main Roux.

But there's a problem, I can't seem to reproduce this example solve. Even the first block is not complete. Tried several times, then used the alg.cubing.net to reconstruct the solve. Still, doesn't seem to work for me. I see a lot of positive reactions to your original post, so I thought, it must be me doing something wrong, since nobody had any issues so far. Could you please take a moment and verify this solution or point at my mistake?
