How can I build a LEGO Rubik's cube, I have 2 of them, and I've built them several times, but how can I build a LEGO Rubik's cube.

  • There is a proposed set on the LEGO Ideas site here of a LEGO Rubik's cube that is sturdier than the smaller one in @jncraton's answer. Of course, you can customize it however you wish. The center uses LEGO Technic to make it sturdy. Go to the updates tab and scroll down for instructions. – A Child of God Feb 15 '17 at 20:53

There seems to be basically two choices. You can either build a larger version than the traditional cube, or you can build something that doesn't stay together very well.

There's a nice example of a small cube on Sebastians Sand's Brickshelf:

While this looks like it would work, I can't imagine that it holds together through many rotations.

If you are willing to build something a bit larger, there are some good examples available, but it looks like it gets fairly complicated.

    This video shows you how to make a Rubik Cube look like LEGO rather than actually being made out of LEGO. – Ambo100 Jun 6 '15 at 19:28

    Downvoting because the question asks about how to build a rubiks cube out of lego, not how to make a rubiks cube look as though it was built out of lego... – kguest Feb 20 '17 at 13:56
