How to handle pictures or logos on the faces

If your cube has a picture on each face or a logo in the center of each face, some extra moves are required to take care of this. The first step is to solve the cube using the directions given on the solution page, while simply ignoring the orientation of the centers. If you just have logos, this is simple since they're easy to ignore. If you have pictures, it's a bit harder since the centers are part of each picture and you'll need to look at them to help you determine how to position the corner pieces in step 1 and step 2. Still, use the centers as reference, but don't worry about their orientation until the cube is completely solved.

Once the cube is solved, the following moves can be used to rotate the middle-center pieces of specific sides. In order to describe these moves, we need to define two new moves in addition to the old ones. The new moves are used to describe rotations of the middle slices, both the horizontal slice between the top and bottom sides, and the vertical slice between the left and right sides.

The Letters:

As before:

  • U stands for the top (Upper) side,
  • F stands for the front side,
  • L stands for the left hand side, and
  • R stands for the right hand side.
  • V refers to the vertical slice sandwiched between the left and right sides.
  • H refers to the horizontal slice sandwiched between the top and bottom sides.

Remember, each side descriptor refers to the side with respect to the figure the move is referenced to.

The Numbers:

  • As before, numbers describe how to rotate a side, clockwise if 1, counterclockwise if -1, and 180 degrees if 2. Look directly at the side described to determine which direction is clockwise.
  • Determine the direction to rotate the V (vertical) slice by looking through the right hand face.
  • Determine the direction to rotate the H (horizontal) slice by looking through the top face.

To further clarify this notation, Move 1 has detailed accompanying figures to better describe it.


Move 1: Rotating a middle-center piece by 90 degrees

Use the following move (or its reverse) to rotate each of the middle-center pieces that needs to be rotated by 90 degrees. Move 1 rotates the piece clockwise, while the Reverse of Move 1 rotates it counterclockwise. Also, since we're dealing with pictures/logos now, we will no longer use the "mirror" convention to show reflections of the hidden sides. Instead, the hidden sides are displayed as "hinged" to their neighbors. Pretend that the sides are like doors mounted on hinges, and have swung open so that you can see them.

  • Since it is impossible to rotate just one piece 90 degrees on a cube, this move has the side effect of rotating the top middle-center piece 90 degrees counterclockwise. If your cube has logos on four faces and solid colors on two of the faces, orient the cube so the solid color is on top and the logo to be rotated is on the left. Otherwise, position the cube so that a piece that needs to be rotated 90 degrees counterclockwise is on the top.
  • If no pieces need to be rotated 90 degrees counterclockwise, then there must be one that needs to be rotated 90 degrees clockwise, so place it on top. After completing Move 1, it will need to be rotated 180 degrees, and Move 2 can be used to accomplish this.
Figure 1

Orient the cube as shown in Figure 1, placing the side with the piece that needs to be rotated on the left, then perform Move 1 to rotate the piece 90 degrees clockwise. 

Move 1: V-1 H-1 V U   V-1 H V U-1

If this notation is still confusing, click on Figure 1 to see example figures demonstrating the move.

Figure 1b  Figure 1c 
For sides with whole pictures rather than just logos, the above two figures 
show views before and after Move 1. The left face has a blue G on it while 
the top face has a circle with a long red line and a short green line. 

Note: To rotate the piece counterclockwise, reverse Move 1, giving:

U V-1 H-1 V   U-1 V-1 H V 

Move 2: Rotating a single middle-center piece by 180 degrees

Use the following move to rotate a single middle-center piece by 180 degrees. Applying Move 1 twice would not have the same effect as applying Move 2, since using Move 1 twice will rotate the top middle-center piece by 180 degrees, in addition to the left middle-center piece.

Figure 2

Orient the cube as shown in Figure 2, placing the side with the piece that needs to be rotated on the top, then perform Move 2 to rotate the piece 180 degrees. 

Move 2: U R L U2 R-1 L-1   U R L U2 R-1 L-1

Notice that the second half of this move is simply the first six steps repeated again. Also, the symbol R represents the right hand side.

Back to the solutions

It matches nicely with the case in colour and shape, but its too small for the finished rolex replica and the heavy borders around it the case makes is unattractive. My breitling replica sale gripes about skeletonised watches certainly have seats at the table here too much wrist in view for sure, and looking at the coiled mainspring is just not rolex replica uk and should have been capped. Even in these touched marketing images you can see how it winds up unevenly, as they all do those tiny little replica watches sale in height among the coils are simply cheap looking to me. After reading the comments about this watch i find it quite funny replica watches uk are getting so worked up about this for various reasons and makes me think people. The additional fact that it is replica watches only associated with replica watches.
