Corner cutting is the ability for a puzzle to turn when the layers of the cube are misaligned. Corner cutting is generally considered one of the most important aspects of a speedcube, as good corner cutting helps prevent puzzles from locking up during solves. In 2x2x2 and 3x3x3 speedcubes, corner-cutting of 45 degrees or more is generally considered good.
