NxNxN Rubik Cube implementation
Project description
MagicCube: A NxNxN Rubik Cube implementation
A fast implementation of the Rubik Cube based in Python 3.x.
Makes it easy to create cubes of various sizes (2x2x2, 3x3x3, 4x4x4, 6x6x6, ...., 100x100x100).
Fast rotation speed when compared with other Python implementations, which makes it suitable for Rubik Cube simulations.
Includes:
 Simple solver for the 3x3x3 cube.
 Move optimizer which reduces the number of moves.
Installation
pip install magiccube
Usage
import magiccube
# 3x3x3 Cube
cube = magiccube.Cube(3,"YYYYYYYYYRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGOOOOOOOOOBBBBBBBBBWWWWWWWWW")
print(cube)
# Rotate the cube
cube.rotate("R' L U D' F B' R' L")
# Solve the 3x3x3 cube
solver = BasicSolver(cube)
solver.solve()
# 6x6x6 Cube
cube = magiccube.Cube(6)
cube.rotate("Rw' Lw 3Uw'")
Examples

Supported Moves and Notation
Basic moves
Move  

L L'  Clockwise/Counterclockwise cube rotation of the LEFT face. 
R R'  Clockwise/Counterclockwise cube rotation of the RIGHT face. 
D D'  Clockwise/Counterclockwise cube rotation of the DOWN face. 
U U'  Clockwise/Counterclockwise cube rotation of the UP face. 
F F'  Clockwise/Counterclockwise cube rotation of the FRONT face. 
B B'  Clockwise/Counterclockwise cube rotation of the BACK face. 
Advanced Moves
Move  

X X'  Cube rotation on X axis. X is the axis that points from LEFT to the RIGHT face. 
Y Y'  Cube rotation on Y axis. Y is the axis that points from DOWN to the UP face. 
Z Z'  Cube rotation on Z axis. Z is the axis that points from BACK to the FRONT face. 
M M'  Rotation of the center layer on the X axis. 
E E'  Rotation of the center layer on the Y axis. 
S S'  Rotation of the center layer on the Z axis. 
Fw Fw'  Wide rotation of 2 layers. 
3Fw 3Fw'  Wide rotation of 3 layers. 
3F 3F'  Rotation of the 3rd layer. 
Cube Coordinates
 Cube coordinates are expressed as a tuple of x,y,z.
 (0,0,0) is the piece on the LEFT,DOWN,BACK corner.
 In a 3x3x3, (2,2,2) is the piece on the RIGH,UP,FRONT corner.
Solver
The solver uses the beginner method to solve the cube
Move Optimizer
The move optimizer does the following optimizations:
 Eliminates redundant moves (ex: L L L L)
 Converts 3x moves to the inverse (ex: F F F > F')
 Eliminates cube rotations (ex: Y F > R)
