How to make a Rubikâ€™s Cube Mosaic.
The Rubik’s Cube has become one of the main intellectual games, and many competitions are held for it and world records are set. Few people use Rubik’s cube to create something called art. Rubik’s cube mosaic, Rubik’s cube pixel art or Rubikcubism. If you can assemble one side of a cube and there are dozens of Rubiks cubes around, you can easily create a Rubik’s cube mosaic. Let’s see how.
Making a mosaic of a Rubik’s Cube
The hardest part of creating a Rubik’s cube mosaic is making the face appear in certain colors. As part of the preliminary planning, you need to develop a layout. This is nothing more than creating an image, changing its color by only six cube colors. So that you can make this image from cubes, turn the image into pixel art and divide it with black stripes. In short, get the output image using software. Open the Twist website. Select the desired image and place it in the indicated location.
The interface will ask you how many Rubik’s cubes you have and will generate a pixel art with those numbers. For the sake of this argument, I’ve chosen 1000 cubes, but you can create a meaningful image from about a few dozen cubes.
After that, you need to select the colors on your cube. Typically a cube has six different colors, and you want to feed those colors into an algorithm to create accurate pixel art. Change the shades of the colors to match the cubes you have and hit the next arrow.
Now change the color threshold. Low thresholds create blurry and more accurate colors in images. High thresholds create areas of solid color. After setting the threshold, click the next arrow.
Choose which type of cubes you have, you have options from 3×3 cubes to 7×7 cubes. However, all Rubik’s cubes must be the same and you cannot use a combination of different types of cubes.
Now just give your Mosiac a name and go to the next step by clicking the arrow.
Here is your final result. Your image, which consists only of Rubiks cube colors, is converted to pixels. You can download it here in PDF format and start creating your Rubik’s cube for real.
But the best part is that you can also get detailed photos showing cubes from only a certain part. Each part of the image has its own name, which indicates its location in the image. It will make things easier if you put all the Rubik’s cubes together.
This method not only makes the editing process easier than editing in Photoshop, but it also gives you more detailed placement of cubes in a specific area. The only drawback is that you cannot edit even small changes yourself. But the software plays a worthy role. What do you think of this method of creating a Rubik’s cube? Are you going to do?
