The term "Bandaging" for Rubik's Puzzles means some pieces cannot move in an otherwise normal turn if the bandage were not there. There have been many puzzles
Bandaging puzzles include but are not limited to:
- Curvy Copter
- Square 1 (the Square 2 fixes the bandaging problem)
- Helicopter Cube
- Latch Cube
- Oskar van Deventer's Bandaged Cube
- Super Square 1
- Two Layered Square 1
- Oskar van Deventer's Enabler Cube (not mass-produced; prototype)
The Axis and Ghost Cubes and the Mastermorphix are not bandaging puzzles as they are fully functional 3x3 shape mods—if you don't put them in the correct 3x3 position they do not have corner cutting So of course, they wouldn't turn.
- If you stick on a 3x3 on top of each other with an adhesive, you get a Siamese Puzzle. This is also a bandaging puzzle because each cube has its own core, so when a layer connected with the other cube attempts to turn it will not work. This is further proven if you put the two cubes side by side, stick them together, and try to play with them like you are playing with a regular 3x3x6.
