2.0 The symbols are based on the convention of writing the three primary axes on a two-dimensional surface as follows:
6.1 They do not fit easily into one square of graph paper. 6.2 They could get confused with rotation symbols or area signs.
8.1 Symbols are based on the convention of draswing the primary axes of the body on a two-dimensional surface. 8.2 Axes would be drawn with one solid line and two dotted lines. 8.3 Planes would be drawn with two solid lines and one dotted line. 8.4 All symbols can be drawn within one square of graph paper. 8.5 Symbols do not reflect the corner of the planes--the points on the icosohedron— but rather show the two axes which generate the planes and the lines around which the planes rotate. 8.6 These symbols use elements similar to the symbols for Effort-Shape notation.
For instance, Ex. 2a indicates a vertical plane with emphasis in the up-down dimension (as is found in the Icosahedron). Ex. 2b indicates a vertical plane with emphasis in the side-side dimension (as is found in the Dodecahedron).
