First Two Layers, or F2L are normally the first two bottom layers of the 3x3x3 Youtube: How to get faster at the 3×3 Rubik’s cube – F2L – by Feliks Zemdegs. We have to learn two algorithms which are symmetric to each other. We call them Left and Right algorithms. Learn how to solve the Rubik’s Cube with this simple and easy to follow F2L ( First 2 Layers) is a way of continuing after solving the cross.

Then, hold this hold the diagonal line at the front face. The idea of F2L is to pair each of the four bottom layer corners with the corresponding edge piece and then insert them into the correct place.

If the cornerpiece is in UFL, turn:. Even though you can already solve this case using the beginner way, I would take the time to practise and learn this algorithm now. Contents [ show ]. The algorithm page has each OLL algorithm ordered by the shape they resemble, so you can find which situation you need easily.

If you can intuitively solve every F2L situation you come across then jolly well runik, but there are a few cases where there is just a better, faster, much less obvious algorithm rubij solve it. If it needs tubik go to the left, f2k this algorithm:.

That can be done like explaned above. That’s called 2-look PLL. FL Corners Step 3: Much like the Sexy Move highlighted in red before, the sequence R’ F R F’ is a trigger called eubik Sledgehammer, and you’ll spot it lurking about in other places and algorithms. After solving the cross, a corner-edge pair is paired up form pairand then inserted into the correct slot pair insertion.

In this step, a first-layer corner henceforth referred to as “the corner” and the middle-layer edge above it “the edge” are inserted at the same time into their designated locations “the slot”. For example, if the edge only shows a blue sticker, the unseen sticker would be red. Intuitive is solving the first two layers by intuition instead of algorithms. So the first algorithm orients all the last layer pieces makes them all face the right way, i.


Mostly, people learn 1-look PLL before 1-look OLL, as t2l are fewer of them to learn and they are more easily identified. These steps are solved using only one algorithm each. Now that you know the beginner method, you can begin to introduce the concepts in this guide into your solves.

I have not had time to make sure all these moves are correct. When ruhik have this pair whether it was by pairing up or notlook at the colour on top. You can do this in whatever order you choose but I have arranged them in what I think is a sensible order to learn them – I have grouped similar algorithms, and put what I think are the easier ones first. Of course, when you’re just sat at home on a lazy Sunday idling the afternoon away with a Rubik’s Cube you likely won’t be paying much attention to official WCA competition rules, but it does give you something to aim for.

If it is on the right, the spot is in FL. Ignore the algorithm if you are just learning F2L. This step is called CPLLas it aims to permute the corners – that is, move rjbik to their correct positions like this:.

First Two Layers (F2L) of Fridrich Speedcubing Method – Wiki

So for OLL, instead of orienting every piece in the last layer at once, we’ll do the edges first and then the corners. After that, you turn F’ again, to restore the cross. There are two ways to execute F2L, intuitive and algorithmic. The moves are based solely on intuition, so algorithms are not required. First Two Tubikor F2L are normally the first two bottom layers of the 3x3x3 cubeor essentially all layers up until the last layer on larger cubes.

Just like the beginner guide, f2o rest of the last layer isn’t an intuitive thing you can just work out if you can, you and your mega-brain should probably be working for NASA or something.

Last Layer Edge Control coming soon! However, many other sites do have so-called “algorithms” for this step. U2 R U2 R’.


Instead, it eubik much better to perform the algorithms slightly more slowly in one continuous stream. And, of course, you want to have two different colours on top.

Only if you do not have any choice, you’ll have to get both pieces out of the lower layers. Rather than relying on a big table of algorithms, F2L is best done intuitively. Your natural instinct may be to use your right hand, which produces the first algorithm. The first approach involves taking each edge piece, putting it above where it needs to go, and turning the appropriate face twice to place the piece on the bottom layer.

First, you can just use the above algorithm anyway, which will make some headlights for you to solve as above. I assure you that the rabbit hole goes even deeper than that, and every situation actually has multiple algorithms for your learning pleasure. The way it works is to split up the steps into two smaller ribik each. This guide takes you through every step of the CFOP speedcubing method.

How To Solve The Second Layer Of The Rubik’s Cube (F2L)

D to save the cornerpiece R to bring up the eventual place of the edgepiece U’ to get the edgepiece in that place R’ to bring the edgepiece down D’ to get the cornerpiece back. Step 1 f2k The Cross This step is the same as the beginner method – forming a cross on the first layer to get this: You will also have noticed that the first two brackets are written in red.

This will be awkward the first few times you attempt it, but it is certainly worth practising. Consider this situation, and the two rugik to solving it:.

You aren’t satisfied with people standing around for 2 minutes while you solve it because that guy at the office didn’t believe you.
