What is this Rubik's Cube setup called? I tried to swap the corners and centers of each side. Is there a name for this?

This is the superflip, the position of a 3x3x3 cube where all edge pieces have been flipped in place, but applied to a 5x5x5 cube using only its outer layers. My preferred method for doing this is the following:

(Shown for a 3x3x3 cube, on a 5x5x5 treat the inner layers as if they form a single middle layer)

    $\begingroup$ Also the superflip is one position that requires the maximum number of turns (in half-turn metric to solve), 20. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I believe not required to solve the metric first. That's how I made it up $\endgroup$
