Clockwise Now realign your split centres. Continue matching up your edges until you only have two sets of edges left to be matched up. The last two sets of edges will more than likely need to be solved When you come to the last two sets of edges you do not have a third set to reset the centres with and it is more than likely that they will not be solved. There is an algorithm for each configuration and at this point I am only considering a page of containing them on this site. The following algorithms will enable you to solve the final two edges by swapping outer edge elements and flipping middle elements.

Another classic is the V-cube 5x5x5, which used to be the cube for competitions, however newer Chinese brand cubes are often faster. This number is close to the estimated number of atoms in the Universe.
First create the centre strip around the centre piece conventionally around the white centre , then create more and move them into place. This twisty puzzle might be even easier because it has fixed centre pieces, and there are no parity cases, but it takes more time to solve it because it has more pieces. Building the 3x3x3 is pretty intuitive, you have to use the same method you used in the case of the 4x4x4 cube.
Pairing the edges is a little different though. You can see a blue line on the attached image where the pieces will be separated in the top layer.
You can have paired pieces in the spots marked with pink without any problem because these will remain intact. There are no parities on the 5x5x5 cube due to the cube having actual centre pieces. This means that for any NxNxN cube parities only occur when N is a even number.
5x5x5 Rubik's Cube -How to solve the Professor's Cube
About Solving the 5x5x5 Professor Cube These instructions can be used to solve a 5x5x5 cube, also known as the professor cube due to its difficulty. These directions are a graphical version of those given by Jacob Davenport. Steps 1. Solve the top points and crosses 2.

While this puzzle is tricky, it can be solved as long as you carefully follow an algorithm known as the reduction method. Next, work on solving the 3x3 centers of each cube face, before trying to line up the edges. All rights reserved. This image may not be used by other entities without the express written consent of wikiHow, Inc. To have an easier time solving the puzzle, assign labels to all 6 faces. Grip the edges of a cube face and rotate it clockwise by 90 degrees. Use this small turn whenever the algorithm specifies a single letter.
