How to Solve the Rubik's Professor Cube (5x5x5)

The Rubik's Professor Cube (5x5x5) is a challenging twisty puzzle that requires a lot of patience and skill to solve. It has 98 movable pieces and 150 stickers, making it one of the most complex Rubik's cubes ever made. If you have already mastered the 3x3x3 and 4x4x4 cubes, you might want to try this puzzle and test your abilities.

In this article, I will show you how to solve the Rubik's Professor Cube using a method called reduction. This method involves reducing the cube to a state that can be solved like a 3x3x3 cube, by solving the center pieces and pairing up the edge pieces. You will also learn some notation and algorithms that will help you along the way.

Step 1: Solve the Center Pieces

The first step in solving the Rubik's Professor Cube is to solve the center pieces. Unlike the 4x4x4 cube, the 5x5x5 cube has fixed center pieces that determine the color of each face. There are three types of center pieces: middle centers, corner centers, and edge centers. You need to arrange them into 3x3 squares of the same color on each face.

A simple strategy to solve the center pieces is to start with one face and build 1x3 bars of the same color. First, make an inner bar with two edge centers and a middle center. Then, make two outer bars with two corner centers and an edge center each. Finally, attach the outer bars to the inner bar to form a 3x3 square.

After solving one face, you can solve the opposite face in the same way, without messing up the first one. Then, hold the solved faces on the left and right sides of the cube and solve two adjacent faces as your third and fourth centers. To solve the last two centers, use the same technique but be careful not to disturb the other centers.

Step 2: Pair Up the Edge Pieces

The second step in solving the Rubik's Professor Cube is to pair up the edge pieces. There are two types of edge pieces: middle edges (midges) and wings. You need to pair up two wings with a matching midge to form a complete edge piece that can be placed on the 3x3x3 layer.

To pair up the first eight edge pieces, you can use a simple algorithm that swaps two wings on opposite sides of the cube. The algorithm is: Rw U2 Rw' U2 Rw U2 Rw' U2 Fw U2 Fw' U2 Fw U2 Fw'. To use this algorithm, find two wings of the same color on opposite sides of the cube and bring them to the front and back faces. Then, perform the algorithm to pair them up with their midges.

Repeat this process until you have paired up eight edge pieces. You can place them on the top and bottom layers of the cube as you go along. To pair up the remaining four edge pieces, you can use a similar algorithm that swaps two wings on adjacent sides of the cube. The algorithm is: Rw U2 Rw' U2 Rw U2 Rw' U2 Lw' U2 Lw U2 Lw' U2 Lw. To use this algorithm, find two wings of the same color on adjacent sides of the cube and bring them to the right and left faces. Then, perform the algorithm to pair them up with their midges.

Step 3: Solve Like a 3x3x3 Cube

The final step in solving the Rubik's Professor Cube is to solve it like a 3x3x3 cube. At this point, you should have six 3x3 faces with solved centers and edges. You can use any method you know for solving a 3x3x3 cube, such as beginner's method or CFOP.

However, there is one possible problem that you might encounter: parity errors. Parity errors are situations where one or two edge pieces are flipped or swapped in their positions, making it impossible to solve like a normal 3x3x3 cube. To fix these parity errors, you need to use some special algorithms that restore 061ffe29dd
