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.
How to fix corner cutting
Cubes not corner-cutting is from two main issues :
1. The cube has a design problem, this issue is rare due to the advances in cube technology, this issue can be fixed by buying a new puzzle, albeit an expensive option. 2. The cube is too tight, usually, a user of a cube is not tensioning his or her cube properly, this can be fixed by loosening the cube but it also makes the cube more unstable.
