Mastermorphix cube a.k.a. Master Pyramorphinx
A big brother to the Pyramorphix.
Each of the 6 edges of this puzzle can rotate. On the off chance that one stays restricted to 180 degree turns of the edges, this is a puzzle of stirring up the colors and afterward reestablishing them, where the puzzle consistently has its right shape. However, the fun begins when you rotate the puzzle 90 degrees and it puts you in a confusing stage.
Here are some cool patterns for it –
This puzzle is solved in same way as of Rubik’s 3x3x3 cube, where each of the 6 edges corresponds to a face of Rubik’s 3x3x3, the four vertices of the Mastermorphix correspond to 4 corners which is not adjecent in Rubik’s 3x3x3 (e.g., two diagonally inverse corners on top and two diagonally inverse corners in the different direction on the bottom), and the four faces of the Mastermorphix relate to the next 4 corners of Rubik’s 3x3x3 (where a face comparing to a corner incorporates a three-sided half of every one of the three faces occurrence to that corner).
That is, expect the 6 edges of the Mastermorphix running diagonally across each face of the 6 substances of the cube, where the 6 center edges of the Mastermorphix relate to the centers of the cube, the 4 traces of the Mastermorphix alongside the four places of the Mastermorphix contrast with the eight corners of the block, and the abundance 12 face regions of the Mastermorphix contrast with the 12 edges of the square). So any solution for Rubik’s 3x3x3 can be used, but in practice this puzzle can be very confusing when mixed up into a jumbled shape, until one gets used to looking at it. In a similar way to the Skewb Egg, just getting the shape back with the one single color gold version is a challenge.
First thing first, hold the Mastermorphix in such a way that you have only one color facing you.
Now, you will have to move right layer 2 times,then move down layer twice in the last left layer twice. To get the desired pattern, repeat the same moves for six times. That means five more times to go.
These small corners have exchanged their places and a really smart dotted pattern is observed. To return to the solved state, we repeat the exact same moves. Just keep the holding position in mind. For example- the 2 red & green have to be exchanged with each other. Keep one in the front & other in the bottom. Now apply the same algorithm. Done, go back to the solved state.
Next pattern is Flower pattern which looks cute. It’s very easy to make but takes a bit of time because we have to apply a small algorithm four times and change the holding position of the mastermorphix in between. Holding position- one center piece in front, apply R L’ U’ Same thing we have to do 4 times, I have already done once, 3 are left. move on to the next center after every R L’, currently, I am at red green center, next will be red yellow. The 1st part is done. Now we have to change the holding position. We have a blue-yellow center in front of us, we will bring a red- blue center in front, now tilt a bit so that you have a cross in front like this. This is right layer R, this is Left L layer, do the same thing again four times. Again, will change the holding position- bring the red-yellow center in front tilt in a way that one color of center is towards up, one edge is like this, non plain. Again apply the same algorithm four times. This is yellow color flower This is blue color flowerThis is green color flower. This is red color flower.To get back to the solved state, remember the holding position and solve in reverse manner.
