Moyu RS3M Maglev
Moyu RS3M MagLev is fundamentally the same cube as Moyu RS3M 2020. It actually has exactly the same pieces inside the cube, so you get the same popular speedcube as before – with a unique upgrade that makes it faster and quieter. The original cube was already really fast, so this cube is incredibly fast. It otherwise performs at the same high level and still at a price point that is difficult to beat.
How it works
For those who have adjusted speedcubes before, the cube looks familiar under the center caps. You will find the classic screw that you screw on using a screwdriver (which is included in the box). There is one magnet under the screw head and another one at the bottom of the center piece. As the screw is tightened, the magnets get closer to each other and the resistance increases. This is something you have probably experienced if you have tried to push two magnets with the same poles against each other. In practice, this works just like a spring. The clear advantage here is that you avoid the friction and the metallic sound of the spring being rubbed against the screw and washer.
Moyu RS3M MagLev
The Moyu RS3M is very popular, but its main critique has been that the magnetic strength between the pieces is somewhat weak. This refers to the magnets in the edge- and corner pieces, not the new MagLev system. If you choose the plus version of RS3M, we add extra magnets to the cube which gives it a stronger magnetic feeling.
RS3M MagLev (DIY)
Know your way around cubes? Choose the “do it yourself” version and we will send you 25 magnets that you can mount in your cube on your own. Here’s how it works:
- Lift a center cap and unscrew a screw.
- Remove all edge and corner pieces from the core.
- Separate all edge pieces.
- Behind each magnet in the edge pieces, place another magnet on top.
- Assemble all the pieces and reassemble the cube.
NOTE! Be careful when assembling the cube. Our warranty does not cover damage that occurs while you modify your cube. Pieces should never be pushed into place with brute force. Unscrew a screw so that you can attach the pieces without having to force them in palce. If you have questions or need assistance, we are happy to help. Contact us here.
