The 'Lubix Megaminx' + Ridges

            The Megaminx is a pretty awesome puzzle.  It comes in 2 varieties... the standard Dayan Megaminx with Ridges, and without Ridges.  The Megaminx with Ridges was the first one we offered.  We have also added the Megaminx with no ridges due to popular poll demands.

            We start with a standard Megaminx with Ridges, and completely disassemble the cube.  We do our branded '48 point edge mod', but on this cube there are 120 points, not 48!  Each edge has 4 points that we do this modification to.  This mod allows the internal edges of the cube to spin smoother, and prevent the edge pieces from catching on adjacent edges and corners.  This causes the cube to feel very smooth, and very fast.  It also removes an unwanted 'click' and extra resistance while spinning the cube.

            The next thing we do, is use our branded 'Lubix Cube Silicone' to lubricate the metal hardware.  This includes lubricating the head of the screw where the spring rubs on the the head of the screw.  We also lubricate the washer on the other side of the spring.  In addition, we lubricate all friction areas of the center pieces where metal rubs on plastic.  This is by far the best method of lubricating the core, and because of the very thick viscosity of our Lubix Cube Silicone, the benefits of this lubrication will last at least six months with excessive use. (100 solves a day, every day for 6 months).  Your Lubix cube should not need any further lubricating for at least 6 months.

            We also remove any imperfections or burrs on the core, so that none of the internal pieces come in contact with the nylon core.  We then reassemble the cube starting with screwing the center pieces to the core.  At this stage, we then do an additional lubrication on the exposed metal core between the core and the center piece.  This offers further lubrication of the biggest friction area on the cube.  We simply call this 'Lubing the core'.  This extra bit of silicone at the highest friction area of the cube is the reason that the cube does not need lubrication for such a long time.

            Next we assemble the cube, and add a bit of our silicone to the surface pieces.  Do note that because our silicone is of a high viscosity, that when you receive your cube, it may at first feel a bit sluggish.  This is normal, and once you have solved the cube about half a dozen times, it will speed up dramatically as the silicone gets worked around to all of the surfaces evenly.

            We double check that all the stickers are correct, and in perfect condition.  If we see an issue with the quality or alignment of the stickers, we replace them before we send the cube out.  

            Finally, we put on our high quality transparent Lubix Cube Logo on the white center on the black cube, and the grey center on the white cube.  This is to show that you have an official Lubix Cube.  Our logo design is simple, and makes it very easy to find the center, with out it being distracting during the rest of the solve.  We use different color schemed logos depending on the cube.  The logo on the Megaminx with Ridges is Orange.

This is the same design as the standard Dayan Megaminx, only this one has ridges on the corners to assist in turning.
