So named on rline’s youtube video. 
Bandaged 3

6/24/14

Had to get a hint from the forum. Get F2L then use LDL’ to put the vertical post on the bottom. 
2bar

6/25/14

Had to get a couple hints from rline’s blog. Edges first. 3x3x2 CPS to solve corners. Bars on L and R. 
3slices

This one is the easiest one yet for me. Reminds me of the F2L part of the Petrus method. 
Fuse

Righthanded TripleEPS (RUR’U’) followed by lefthanded (F’U’FU) 3cycles corners on top (on U). 
Edge Road

Simple using the techniques described above.

Unbandaged Big Block v1

7/2/14

Similar to all the rest of the Big Blockish types so far. i.e. get block then orient edges… 
Unbandaged Big Block v2

7/2/14

Orienting edges was tricky but possible.

3 Bar

Similar to 3x3x2 
3 Bar Clock

7/5/14

Edges First; 3x3x2; 1x2 corners first; last 3cycle tricky—needed setup.

Swap of corneredge pairs needed at end. Never did codify how to do it, but did it. 
Unbandaged Walli

7/7/14

Very easy 
Walli

7/8/14

Got it down to needing to twist two corners but they are not in corners that can be twisted using the sune/mirror dune method. Finally got it! 3cycle the corners into the correct positions, then twist them, then 3cycle them back. 
Detiled Corners Only Fuse3

7/10/14

Could get close but not finish it, so finally sat down with a notebook and figured it out. 
Fuse3 minus 5 edges

7/11/14

Used the Corner 4cycle to hide the edge. It worked. 
Fuse3 minus 4 edges

Worked out a fairly thorough solution and documented it on Puzzled 2.

Bandage Loop

Documented on old blog post. 
Unbandaged Flying Carpets

7/15/14

I struggled to get the middle layer, but finally achieved it by trying to organize the 2x1 yellows somewhat. Then when I looked at the yellows all I needed to do was twist 3 corners to have a pattern that pleases me. I have "iii" on one side, and "iö" on the other side. (from PM to Burgo)

I made a puzzle and solved it. Then I extended it to budlcuber 02 and am totally baffled.

Fully tiled version of 0103. Documented on the blog. 
Big Block Clock

7/19/14

A couple solves. The first one fell together a bit easier, but the second wasn’t all that bad. 
Unbandaged Big Block Clock v1

7/20/14

Scrambled, solved down to a tricky 4cycle, gave up. Approached it from the “analyze what CAN be done” perspective and figured it out. Scrambled and solved. 
Unbandaged Big Block Clock v2

7/20/14

This one solves like the others but looks sort of like budlcuber 04. Sort of. 
Stonehenge

7/21/14

Very similar to Unbandaged Big Block Clock v2 but with a 2x1x1 column under the 2x2x1 roof. 
Bandage 3+

7/22/14

When it was down to 2 corners needing twisted with the 2x2x1 on D and 1x1x1 at 3, RU’R’ F’U2F makes it so the Sune/Mirror twister works.

Bandage Cube Kit—Recap of Summer Solves So Far

Is there a website that has pictures of all these bandaged puzzles?
ReplyDeleteHi Paul, most of them, if not all of them, can be found at http://twistypuzzles.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=24452&hilit=Bandaged. There are even more there that I did not solve! Have fun.
DeleteThanks for the reply  after searching quite a long time I eventually found that some kind soul had prepared a word doc with pictures of around 80 bandaged puzzles. I thought I was doing quite well solving reasonably hard puzzles such as the bid block clock but now I am totally stuck on stalactites and stalagmites. I solved it a few times but now I seem to have scrambled it in such a way that I can't solve it  any hints on swapping 2 edges only? Thanks!!!!
ReplyDeletei played a lot with the kit in the summer of 2014. I don't remember if I did that one enough times to run into that situation. i know I took notes on some of the puzzles but my notebook isn't with me now. The forum above is a good source. If you post the question there you might find someone who remembers. I brought my kit with me so maybe I should put it together and see if I can remember how to solve it.
ReplyDeleteI don't think you can have 2 edges swapped with all else solved, just like a Rubik's cube can not. So perhaps someone swapped some tiles when your back was turned. A picture would be helpful. Are you on the twisty puzzles.com forum? That would be a great resource for this puzzle. I posted quite a bit there last summer as I worked through many of the bandage puzzles.
ReplyDeleteYou are right  I wasn't left with only 2 edges to swap or flip  I think there were 4 pieces left. Unfortunately I can't send a picture as I bet my son that he couldn't solve it  he used his initiative and took the tiles off and put them back on! I've applied to become a member on the twisty puzzles forum  thanks!
