The cube shows two complementary black and white checkerboards located on the Up and Down
faces and triangular shape stickers on the four remaining faces. All triangular shape stickers on a given
face are oriented in the same direction whereas the orientations of stickers located on two adjacent faces
differ by 90°. All cube pieces are unique which allows only one solution. Since four centers out of six
have to be oriented, the cube shows 256 (= 4^{4}) times more positions than a regular cube.

The layout of the Tangram Cube was created in 2010 by Ortwin Schenker.

(4 Dots)

**Algorithm**

(R2 L2 · MD)2 (6 ltm, 8* ftm, 12* qtm)

**Algorithm**

MR2 MD MR2 MD' (4* ltm, 8* ftm, 12* qtm)

**Note**

On the Tangram Cube, the 4 Dots pattern looks indistinguishable to the initial state. However, it can not
regarded as another valid solution, since the centers have to keep their original locations. Note that on the
Color Tangram Cube this pattern looks different to the
initial state.

(4 Dots)

**Algorithm**

R2 L2 · U D' · F2 B2 · U D' (8 ltm, 8* ftm, 12* qtm)

**Algorithm**

MR2 MD MR2 MD' · CD2 (4* ltm, 8* ftm, 12* qtm)

**Note**

On the Tangram Cube, the 4 Dots pattern looks like a 180° rotation of the whole cube around the axis of the
Up and Down faces. But actually the centers didn't move.

(4 Parallel Bars, 2 Chessboards)

**Algorithm**

MR2 MF2 (2* ltm, 4* ftm, 8* qtm)

**Note**

On the Tangram Cube, the 4 Parallel Bars, 2 Chessboards pattern creates a solid face on the top and bottom.
