About Solving the 5x5x5 Professor Cube These instructions can be used to solve a 5x5x5 cube, also known as the professor cube due to its difficulty. These directions are a graphical version of those given by Jacob Davenport. Steps 1. Solve the top points and crosses 2. Solve the bottom points 3.

While this puzzle is tricky, it can be solved as long as you carefully follow an algorithm known as the reduction method. Next, work on solving the 3x3 centers of each cube face, before trying to line up the edges.

Grip the edges of a cube face and rotate it clockwise by 90 degrees. Use this small turn whenever the algorithm specifies a single letter. For example: Imagine that the upper face is completely green, while the front face is completely red.
At this point, 1 row of the green squares will now be visible of the right face of the cube. Keep an eye out for algorithm shorthand that includes both numbers and letters.
Once you finish turning the front face, the bottom row of the upper face will be orange. Keep an eye out for stray apostrophes, as they can make your puzzle-solving experience much more difficult.
While most algorithm steps require you to turn the cube clockwise, this punctuation requires you to turn the cube in the opposite direction. Turn the front face 90 degrees to the left whenever you see an apostrophe listed in the algorithm e.
Keep your eyes peeled for an additional number included in the puzzle algorithm. The can be easy to miss! For the first algorithm, rotate the right face clockwise, the upper face counter-clockwise, and the right face counter-clockwise.
To solve the second algorithm, turn the front face clockwise, the right face counter-clockwise, the front face counter-clockwise, and the right face clockwise. Adjust the front-right edge by turning the right cube face clockwise, then rotating the upper face in a clockwise direction as well.
Continue by turning the right face counter-clockwise, the front face clockwise, the right face counter-clockwise again, and the front face counter-clockwise. Finish by rotating the right face clockwise. First, rotate the top 2 layers of the cube in a counter-clockwise direction. Finally, finish off the algorithm by rotating the top 2 layers of the cube clockwise. Physically roll the entire cube backward before proceeding. Continue following this algorithm until there are no more parities leftover on the cube.

Another classic is the V-cube 5x5x5, which used to be the cube for competitions, however newer Chinese brand cubes are often faster. This number is close to the estimated number of atoms in the Universe. First create the centre strip around the centre piece conventionally around the white centre , then create more and move them into place. This twisty puzzle might be even easier because it has fixed centre pieces, and there are no parity cases, but it takes more time to solve it because it has more pieces. Building the 3x3x3 is pretty intuitive, you have to use the same method you used in the case of the 4x4x4 cube. Pairing the edges is a little different though. You can see a blue line on the attached image where the pieces will be separated in the top layer.
