# Penrose Cube EASIEST Method! (Difficult 3x3 Shape Mod)

Welcome back today .

We're gonna learn the easiest method to the three by three shape mod the Penrose Cube .

If you want to see my original unboxing of this video , click the link above .

Since the pans cube is just a three by three shape mod I will require that you already know how to solve the three by three .

Before watching this video .

If you don't , you can view my page for each tutorial and then you can come back to this video first off .

Let's take a look at the puzzle itself .

So there are only three colors in the pan rose cube , even though there are still six sides .

This means that any single side you look at there is going to be the same color next to it .

Using these curved edges , the curved edges are actually symmetrical .

So you won't know whether it's flipped , which could create some problems later .

Additionally , there are some sets of identical pieces such as this red and blue and this red and blue edge .

This means that when you're on your last layer , you could have these two flipped and you wouldn't know it .

These problems will also be addressed later .

But as for the solving , it shouldn't be too different from a normal three by three , you just have to translate this into a normal three by three , Rubik's cube .

All right .

So the puzzle is messed up .

Now , let's solve the cross solving .

The cross shouldn't be too different .

You just have to look for the pieces that look like they fit in and then slide them into place as you normally would .

However , you will have to remember that when you have two colors of the same , you will have the round edge as opposed to a square edge .

So I'm looking for this piece .

I found it .

And then this is actually my last cross edge .

When solving your first layer corners , only one of them will be square .

This will be the one in between the three different centers .

However , sometimes you can put it in and it will look wrong .

This means that you actually picked the other corner that should go on the opposite side of the cube , just try putting in the different square corner and it should work .

Also , if you're having trouble putting in a corner , try to visualize what the corner should look like .

For instance , here , even though this corner is blue and yellow , it actually is wrong because it should be a yellow semicircle and then a blue ramp .

So I'll look for that piece here .

It is .

And this is the correct piece that should go there on the side with the curved edge , things will get a little bit difficult .

It's sort of hard to see how the corner will go in .

I would suggest doing a lot of guess and check until eventually your corner fits in your second layer shouldn't be too different , except you will have to remember that on the side with two of the same centers , you will have the curved edge that will fit in .

Now , for solving the last layer cross , now you could come across cases like this where it looks like one of the edges is flipped .

However , you have to remember that the ramp edge can always be flipped .

So in this case , I would just not care about that and recognize that I have an L case , I'll just do my algorithm for that .

And the cross is still solved when solving your last layer corners , it's still important to visualize what pieces you should go where for instance this piece , even though it's the correct colors is actually in its wrong slot .

While you're solving your last layer of corners , there's still one more problem that can occur .

This is when you have the rest of it solved except for two corners that need to be swapped .

Now , in this case , this is actually caused by the two identical edges being swapped .

All you will have to do is just imagine that these two need to be flipped and go back a few steps , then you'll hold a cube like this , do your beginner's method algorithm and then it should fix this problem .

Once you have fixed this problem , you should just be able to finish the cube .

Like the normal Jeter step is a fun challenge .

If you know co is to recognize PLL cases .

Recognizing pl cases on the Penrose cube is actually pretty difficult since there are identical pieces and some of them are hard to recognize .

But overall this is a fun challenge .

Well , there you have it , there is the easiest method to the Penrose Cube .

I hope this video is helpful to you and for the future .

Good luck .
