Dear Dr. Grant,
	We are definitely interested, though we would be more likely to implement it in ChimeraX than Chimera, since most of our new work is in ChimeraX and also ChimeraX has better underlying support for adding new depictions like this.  We will discuss this in a meeting on Tuesday and get back to you with further details.

The article is here <https://academic.oup.com/glycob/article-lookup/doi/10.1093/glycob/cwv091>, and the webpage is here <https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK310273/>. Our group has created a 3D version <http://glycam.org/docs/othertoolsservice/2016/06/03/3d-symbol-nomenclature-for-glycans-3d-snfg/> of the symbols within the software VMD. Here's a video showing both versions. <http://glycam.org/docs/othertoolsservice/wp-content/uploads/sites/15/2016/06/3D-SNG_PDB-3SGJ.mp4> We have also worked with David Sehnal to implement this into LiteMol, here is an example <https://webchemdev.ncbr.muni.cz/LiteMol/Viewer/?loadFromCS=5a6z>. I wanted to reach out and see if you are interested to implement this representation within Chimera? We can discuss the details if so.
