Abstract

Using six colors, one per side, cubes can be colored in 30 unique ways. In this paper, a row and column pattern in Conway’s matrix always leads to a selection of eight cubes to replicate one of the 30 cubes. Each cube in the set of 30 has a 2 × 2 × 2 replica with inside faces of matching color. The eight cubes of each replica can be configured in two different ways.
