I tried two ways of creating the various 3 digit numbers before testing whether they fit the condition. One using append fields (messy) and one using "Generate Rows".

This was a good challenge to familiarize myself with swapping between numbers as text vs numbers as numbers.   I guess I could actually have had one complex formula to conclude Y/N on whether sum of cubes = number, but where is the fun in writing long formulas.

 

Spoiler
Both of these give you the 4 results:

The key processing is in the formula tool, which just cubes and totals the digits. I use a filter to fine where "Total" (of cubes) = the three digit number.

It initially sounded like, I needed a loop but this was a good exercise.

This was a fun one! I couldn't figure out a way to split the digits into columns without translating it to string and back to number.
