The Ocean cube puzzle is the 5th cube in the impossible cube series. This cube is easier than the 4th and the 6th Impossible cube. Don’t underestimate it though… It’s still challenging!
Small warning… This cube is very difficult. None of my playtesters were able to assemble this cube (in the hard configuration) after disassembling it.
You can solve this cube in two ways. You can use a rotation move to assemble the cube or you can use only linear moves to solve it. I designed this cube some time ago and I found it surprisingly difficult to find the solution without rotating any parts!
Because of the ocean theme I decided to only use recycled plastic to print this cube.
This cube takes 28 steps to disassemble (18.104.22.168)
You will get the .stl files to 3D print this cube yourself. This cube can be printed without any support material. There are three different tolerances to print the cube: 0.25mm, 0.15mm and 0.05mm. There is also a burrtools file which you can use to make your own tolerances. If you print this cube it will be extra challenging because you start with the disassembled parts.
