Enabler Cube

Enabler Cube was suggested in a discussion at the Twisty Puzzles Forum. It acts like a Rubik’s Cube with blocked layers. Only three layers can turn, i.e. those in which the rounded enabler cube resides. Specialists may call this type of turning deeper-than-deep cut. This puzzle is sort-of the opposite of Fused Cube, where the three layers of the special corner cube cannot turn.  This puzzle was inspired by a similar design by Evgeniy Grigoriev with an unlocking edge instead of an unlocking corner, and a comment by Bram Cohen.

This puzzle cube looks so close to a Rubiks cube, all the pieces look the same except for one special cube in it because it is a bit rounded. It is more correct to say that it is a variation to a Rubiks cube. There is a special meaning to that special cube and it is called the enabler. This puzzle cube turns smoothly but without the enabler, you cannot make turns. Move the enabler to the side where you wish to turn. You will surely enjoy playing with this awesome puzzle cube.
