Browse this huge collection of Pretty Patterns by Walter Randelshofer. It features over 4,300 patterns for cube models with up to 7 layers such as the Pocket Cube, Rubik's Cube, Rubik's Revenge, Professor's Cube, V-Cube 6 and V-Cube 7, but also patterns for the Pyraminx.
Most scripts are optimized for layer-turn metric (ltm), face-turn metric (ftm) and quarter-turn metric (qtm). Move counts which are optimal in a given metric are marked with an * asterisk.
Algorithms of high order cubes are measured in block-turn metric (btm).
Superset ENG Notation
The Superset ENG notation (SSE) is a powerful notation for cube models of any size. The notation is based on the book 'Inside Rubik's Cube and Beyond' by Christoph Bandelow, 1982 Birkhäuser Verlag, Boston.
The SSE notation supports 90° and 180° twists of single layers, moves of grouped layers (block or deep moves) and slice moves. A whole cube can be rotated along its face axes, edge axes and corner axes. Permutation and orientation changes of individual cube parts can be specified using permutation cycles.
The notation supports the following high-level constructs: permutation, grouping, repetition, inversion, reflection, conjugation, commutation, rotation and single-line and multiple-line comments.
