## WHAT IS IT?

This is a 3D version of a rubix cube I made to play around with

## THINGS TO DO

Use "Spin" to spin the cube arround the z-axis

Use "Roll" to roll cube around y-axis

Use "R" to spin the right face clockwise

All other moves are composed of these three elementry moves

## SOLVING

The notation and pre-built algorithms support solving the cube using this guide:
