- There are no solutions yet. Solve a cube to see the solution here.
SolveMyCube uses the power of Herbert Kociemba's Cube Explorer web server functionality to provide the solutions needed to solve scambled 3x3x3 Rubik's Cubes in a small number of moves. SMC was developed entirely by one man, a lot of people know him as Ivik Injerd, others know him under the online alias of zavaboy.
In the beginning of it's development, SMC's goal was very vague and wasn't really planned out much at all, but it's core purpose was clear: Make a database of Cube Explorer servers provided from the community to solve anyone's Rubik's Cube. The development proceeded slowly once more as life's distractions kept Ivik away from the project he has been so passionate about. As the end of 2010 approached, he continued to develop SMC and eventually got to a point he could set a launch date.
- Version 1.0
- Fix all known and reported bugs.
- Clean up code.
- Version 2.0
- Make algorithms scrollable. For example, next/previous controls to navigate through each move of a algorithm, like from a solution or a random cube.
- View server information. Useful for CE server owners who want to see the performance history of their servers and where they are compared to the other servers.
- Make friendly for handheld devices. Make interface look good in a phone, like the iPhone, by making layout fit nicely on small screens and displaying buttons for keyboard shortcuts.
- Solutions import/export. Allow the list of solutions to be imported or exported in both TXT (as supported by CE) and HTML formats.
- Allow color modification. Allow users to select their own colors for the cube and change the cube's color orientation.
- Auto complete cube as it is filled in. When the user is filling in the colors of the cube, remaining colors will automatically be filled in.
- 2010-12-10 - Version 1.0 beta
- The first version finally released.

So, now what would you like to do next?
This help is a quick little guide to the original 3x3x3 Rubik's Cube and it's notation. At the bottom are some resources for more on verious aspects of the wonderful Rubik's Cube.
Invented in 1974 by Ernő Rubik, the Rubik's Cube has inspired and frustrated millions of people since the 1980s. Even though the Cube can be scrambled into more than 43 quintillion combinations (or "permutations"), none of them require more than 20 moves to be solved. Most people who have seen or used a Rubik's Cube overlook the simple fact that the center pieces never move from their relative positions. This allows you to know which color each side is supposed to be just by looking at the center pieces.
The notation is fairly simple to learn. Below explains all the notations this site uses.
- (Front) the side facing you
- (Back) the side opposite of the front
- (Up) the side above or on top of the front side
- (Down) the side opposite of the top, underneath the Cube
- (Left) the side directly to the left of the front
- (Right) the side directly to the right of the front
A letter by itself (eg: F) denotes a 90° turn clockwise. A letter followed by a prime (eg: L') denotes a 90° turn counter-clockwise. A letter followed by a 2 (eg: U2) denotes a 180° turn.
- Turn the Front side 90° clockwise.
- U' F
- Turn the Up side 90° counter-clockwise and then turn the Front side 90° clockwise.
- Turn the Left side 180° either direction.
So you know...
