Uni-Cube (white) . This is a puzzle I set about designing years ago. It started as a simple 3x3x3 assembly cube that had to fit inside the box. The pieces were randomly chosen and then worked with until I ran into a solution. After reflecting upon the puzzle a year later, I realized that I wanted it to be more unique (hence the name Uni-Cube), and I came up with some restrictions that I would have to follow to redesign the puzzle. The restrictions are as follows:

-Three of the puzzle pieces must contain 4 "cubes"

-Three of the puzzle pieces must contain 5 "cubes"

-All puzzle pieces must not have 2x2 blocks contained in them

-All puzzle pieces must be 2-dimensional (that is with a maximum height of 1 cube in a single direction)

These restricions led to the creation of the Uni-Cube Black. The Black puzzle has 2 solutions, both only slight variations of each other (and an additional 2-dimensional solution as well).

After completing the Black Uni-Cube, I decided to make a white counterpart that had all of the same restrictions, except that all of the pieces must NOT be 2-dimensional. The White Uni-Cube was much simpler to design and build, and has a few more solutions than the Black Uni-Cube.

I am very proud of the two Uni-Cubes, and they have gone through extensive re-designing (especially the black one), so any feedback would be greatly appreciated. . The goal is to fit the pieces into the 6x6x6 cavity inside the 8x8x8 box. The orientation of the smooth tiles were designed to aid in finding a solution. Good luck!
