7x7x7

I bought a 7 layer VCube and I've really enjoyed it. If you have one and you prefer to see the applet below using a vcube click here.

From what I've seen there are no algorithms specific to the 7x7x7. You can pretty much use the same ones as for the 5x5x5, you just may need to include an additional slice in your rotations.

Below you can see what happens when you apply the 5x5x5 pattern as-is vs adapting it to include additional layers.
