Looks fairly simple, but you need to think outside the box if you wish to complete this chamber.

(Continued) - And that's coming from a player with 1900+ hours on Portal, so trust me on this one, play a lottttttt of Portal before attempting this.

Then of course the hard part began. Getting btoh of the cubes in the entrace/exit room with at least a portal surface on the funnel. Seemed impossible to me at the time. Thought of a multitude of things, most of which forgot the fact you needed to have something on the button to activate the laser. An hour+ of bouncing around aimlessly and actually thinking really hard about the puzzle and how to solve it, and everthing in between - in other words, hard work - got me here.

What a masterpiece of a puzzle. And I thought I had it all figured out.

GG Gig. Difficulty - VERY difficult. Not many puzzles even come close to being as hard as this.

(Continued) The first part was easy. It took a few different ideas but getting the weighted cube wasn't really that hard, I tried getting it with the reverse funnel the first time to find that it was also in line with the cube activating the reverse funnel itself so that didn't work at all. I had to actually do that as a first step tho, to get myself in a position where I could get momentum using that same protal surface that reverse funnel was and then bounce myself between 2 floor portals, reaching up to the weigted cube spawn button. I had to quickly place a portal on the now angled panel as I was falling to retrieve the cube. I've seen others had trouble in here with that (I read comments looking for a solution lol) but it was easy for me.

Oh. My. God. That took wayyyyyyyyyy too long. 90 minutes almost in this attempt, half an hour in the last one... overall spent 2 hours trying to figure out this thing. And the thing that gets me really mad is that I was one step away from the solution 3 other times - I had the cube on the button activating the laser, but never thought till now to put the other cube on the button activating the funnel and deactivating the lasers, well I did but I never seen the connection, so I could walk through while the laser was portaled through to the redirection, so I could stand at the other side and then portal the reverse funnel to suck the cube and destroy it, sending it back here which I wanted to do for soooooo long!

Not at all simplistic! What a great puzzel! Couldn't solve it some month ago, but with a fresh mind, it took me only 30 minutes, tonight... Mindbending!

Never used the funnel in the test. I'm assuming I didn't beat it the intended way. I assume the funnel was to remove the cube from the button that lowers the platform, but having just played your map "outside the box" I had cube osicilating on the mind and I just bumped the cube off the button with the other cube after oscialting it then aiming at the wall beside the button.

NVM. I am familar with sacrifice cube puzzles but mostly with pushing a button or something. I've rarely done fizzler sacrifices and then autorespawn . Usually it is just one xor the other, never both!

I managed to trap myself just my exploring how to solve the second part. I know the excursion funnel is to push off the cube to the exit but trying to setup something I didn't try yet resulted in trapping:

I'm done for now. I need a solution video or demo file! I tried stacking cubes and switching cubes around on buttons. I am also aware of two different methods to redirect the laser into the catcher. I know that sacrificing the cube is part of the solution. I just hate outsmart fizzler tests. Also antlines were a bit of a mess. Updates to the in-game editor and my guide didn't exist at the time.

Well, I solved it in my head. That was the easy part. Just couldn't manage the mouse gymnastics required to complete. Perhaps it was designed for a game controller rather than mouse and keyboard. Thumbs up for the design.
