Since my Siamese Cubes were probably the first twisty puzzle transformation in the world I though it would be nice to do the same thing with the 6x6x6 V-Cubes. I decided to make both black and white versions in 2009. I made them by cutting the cubes at a 45 deg angle and then gluing them together. There are a number of alternative ways to make the cuts but this gave a nice internal view of the 6x6x6s before assembly (see photos). The cuts were initially made with a Dremel but finished with a small hack saw. This process is shown in the video.
Quality is pretty good and the construction stops the 6x6x6s from ever locking up. I used standard Rubik's Cube style stickers taken from the V-Cubes.
Other Siamese puzzles I have made are my original Siamese Cubes, Siamese Skewbs, Siamese 5x5x5s, Triamese 5x5x5s Siamese 2x2x2 Triplets and Micro Siamese Cubes.
