Your ANA print is actually created from one half of a hexagon. The half-hexagon is reflected along the middle axis during printing to create a full six-sided hexagon.
Each half-hexagon contains 3 possible positions to encode data.
Each position represents the order in which you pressed a key.
Hitting Spacebar will skip over and leave a position blank.
Locate the small dome on top of your print. The position directly beneath
the dome (position 1) is where you can begin to read your print.
If the letter R is the 1st key pressed, it will get placed in position 1.
If the letter R is the 5th key pressed, it will get placed in position 5.
If the letter F is pressed, it will get placed on the position to the left.
If the letter H is pressed, it will get placed on the position to the right.
In this example NEU.EDU is created.
Period and all other forms of punctuation create an empty space on the print.
There are 37 possible characters to choose from: A - Z, 0 - 9, and Spacebar.
It is possible to create a single print containing up to 36 characters.
