DeepCube is a computer simulation of a generalized 3D cube puzzle. Inspired by the popular and time-tested Rubik's Cube, it extends the original 3x3x3 cube concept to cube lengths ranging from 1 through 9. Additionally, it models the motions and orientations of interior as well as exterior subcubes, each with all six of their faces viewable and appropriately colored. For example, with a cube length of 5, you are challenged to solve the puzzle by aligning simultaneously 125 subcubes.

DeepCube also supplies several tools to help you see inside the cube and to keep track of your moves as you develop useful layer-rotation sequences. You can see a demonstration of many of these capabilities by running the sequences in the "demos" pop-up menu in the "sequences & patterns" panel.
