@<Moving-DEATH> You don't even need to take the laser-cube out of the room.
After you open up the first fizzler put a portal in that little room then a portal at the end of the light bridge.
Enter the first room and place a portal in it.
Then go back to the second room and point the laser through the portal at the end of the light bridge.
You can use the light bridge to gain access to the lift.

good map.
the room with 2 fizzlers got me thinking.
nice.
was I meant to stand on the piston platform (to get to the exit) & drop the reflector cube into the button.
it worked eventualy, but a few times, turned, so the lasser did not reflect into the lasser catcher.

no problem with lift

I really liked the multiple chambers and the idea of a laser-grid, but I was able to complete the map without the grid, skipping a few chambers in the process!

Alternate Method:
• Get first lazer-cube into first room;
• Get second-cube;
• Place second-cube in 'forth-cube''s recepticle (near the enterance);
• Return first laser-cube to second-room (its origin);
• Return to second room;
• In second-room, lower 'exit' fizzler;
• Press button, put portal on second-level in first room;
• Point laser-cube-in-button toward white-surface (away from the other room);
• Portal laser's spot;
• Walk through portal to first-room;
• Portal laser to second-cube;
• Exit level;

Oh man do I have feedback for you :))
First of all, epic map, probably best non-hammer map I've played so far, it's so cleverly designed, although I'm pretty sure I didn't solve it the indended way, but it was nevertheless amazing even if it was not intentional hehe, i mean... it was so much fun it should have been intended! (which is why I reccomend maybe not fixing it lol)
Cool thing in the first part of the puzzle is that It's doable without the lightbridge, see if you can figure out how, but it's pretty simple i guess (achievement unlocked?)
Here is a very short clip of the part that I'm not sure if it's inteded or not: http://youtu.be/gVaqBo8zz-s
And then here is a series of screenshots showing what I did to solve it, although I'm begining to think I could have skipped the last chamber alltogether considering i got 2 extra cubes in the end: http://i.imgur.com/YAbAa.jpg

Great map! I've done a blind play through and the video and commentary are processing now! Shouldn't be too long before it's up! I had a lot of fun with this one, keep them coming!
