So how did the designer communicate his complex design ideas (in his head) to the craft persons that were executing the finished blocks?

Again.. complex inter fitting shapes need a design as they cannot occur randomly. No two blocks are identical but many are very similar. Also the similarity is carried over three distinct groups of blocks. Therefore they need a designer.
A design/concept is a mental process ..(in the mind), how did the designer communicate his wishes (in his mind) to those carrying out the work?

I'm not sure that the G1 is the result of natural processes. It carries all the hallmarks of very intelligent design.

I'm sorry but the linear and consistent and exact nature of the pyramid AP block work in no way resembles any natural process including bee hives or random background noise.
What were the "simple rules"?
You suggested that available block size and shape maybe a factor. Available blocks that repeat themselves in threes, three times over??? If that had been received by Seti it would cause considerable excitement.
Problem is how does a designer get the mental picture in his head (concept) transferred to the craftsmen in such a way as to allow them to execute the project, a very complex inter fitting project.
The only simple rule is to follow the designers drawing. A necessarily complex mathematical, three dimensional drawing. Not simple. Not piecemeal. Not cobbled together. No simple rules.
Designed and executed with astonishing precision!
I get the impression that you don't fully understand what's going on here.
How does one accurately describe this to another person, without making an accurate blueprint/drawing in such a way that they can produce an exact copy of your mental/imagined picture.
Even if the designer were also the block carver, carving the first block intuitively, freehand, how does he then carve the second interfitting block without the aid of a 'visual thought transfer device'. (A Drawing).
I guess telepathy would help.
If you are saying that something existed that somehow replaced what we know today as a blueprint or a visual communication, telepathy, sixth sense, incredibly complex verbal instructions, then that's another matter.
However there has to be a means to transfer the concept to the production team. AKA a blueprint.
