Once the two Companion Cubes have been disintegrated by GLaDOS, place one between the beam to break it, lowering the platform behind you.

Place a portal directly under it and once you’re standing on the platform, fire off the exit portal at the vertical wall behind it to re-engage the beam, taking the platform upwards to the next floor.

At the top you’ll notice two angled walls on your left. Fire a portal at the angled wall farthest away and then drop back down towards the Companion Cube.

Walk back through the portals and you’ll reappear with the Cube on the upper level of the chamber. Drop the Cube down by your side and then look back down towards the beam below you.

Look for what colour the portal is below you and change its location so it’s facing upwards. Pick up the Companion Cube and fall down towards the portal, you’ll fly out of the angled wall towards the red button.

You need to take the Companion Cube with you to the elevator for the ‘Preservation of Mass’ Achievement/Trophy. To do this, once you reach the end of the chamber, shoot a portal at the wall just past the exit door, drop down and grab the Cube. Now fall into a portal on the ground below and you can carry it to the elevator from here!
