Step 6 Now Complete The Shape Of The Hexagon
Draw a left diagonal line on the only remaining blank space to finally complete the figure of the hexagon. Keep in mind that straight lines forming the hexagon should all be of the same lengths.
The foolproof method of knowing if you drew a hexagon correctly is when it precisely fits inside a perfect circle. You can apply this method to be certain of your drawing and just erase the circle afterwards.
How To Draw A Hexagon With A Compass: Finished Drawing
How to draw a hexagon with a compass: completed perfect hexagon
Here is the complete geometrically perfect hexagon.
If you would want the hexagon to sit on the flat side, rather than stand on its corner, you can use the same technique. Just draw the half circles from the left and right, rather than the top and bottom intersection of the cross and circle.
And finally, if you do not have a compass on hand: You can get pretty close using anything round, such as the top of a glass, to draw your circles. Just try to make the top and bottom semicircle meet as closely as possible to the centre of the full circle.
Now you have learned an easy method of how to draw a hexagon using the compass to construct a perfectly regular hexagon.
How To Draw A Hexagon: Using Compass And Hand
The first way how to draw a hexagon is to construct it precisely using a compass and ruler. That way we get a geometrically perfect hexagon.
Our second hexagon is drawn by hand and built up from six triangles of the exact same shape. This is an easy technique how to draw a hexagon with a reasonably regular shape by hand.
Step 4: The Math Behind It
The hexagon looks cool, right? But how does it work? To start, you have to know that the inside angles of triangles add up to 180°. Knowing this, we divide the hexagon into triangles, and we get 6 equilateral triangles. Then, we divide the triangles by 3 to find each of their angle measures, and we get 60°. Looking at the drawing above, you can see that for every angle of the hexagon, there are 2 60° angles that are part of the triangle. This tells us that each interior angle on the hexagon is 60° + 60° which equals 120°. So that means if you were to take a ruler and draw a straight line, let’s say 2 inches, then take a protractor and measure 120° then repeat that 5 more times, you would end up with a perfect hexagon.

Step 3: Draw The Hexagon
1. Place one end of the ruler at the point where any one of the petal-shaped lines meet the circle. Place the other end on another petal-shaped line that is touching the circle. Trace the ruler from the first petal to the second petal.2. Repeat this on all the petals. You should now have a hexagon outline around all the petals. You can either erase all the petals and use the hexagon for whatever you want or you can cut out the hexagon and either flip it and glue it to something or you can use it to trace on other things. Have fun making!
Starting With The Center Point And Side Length
Hexagon Drawing With A Compass
Step 1: Draw a circle
First draw a cross two guidelines of the same length, crossing at a right angle . These will form the base of our construction.
Then take your compass and draw a circle from the centre where the two lines cross.
If you are aiming to construct a hexagon with a given side length, the radius of the circle, i.e. the opening of your compass, is the given length of the side of a completed hexagon.
Step 2: Mark the top two corners
Next, we will mark the top two corners. Leave your compass set to the same radius, and draw a semicircle from the top intersection of our circle and the vertical cross line.
If you are aiming to erase all these construction lines later, just mark the spots where the semicircle intersects with the circle.
We have drawn the full half-circle here just to show the fact that we still draw with the same radius, and to make the explanation a bit more obvious.
Step 3: Repeat and mark the bottom two corners
We repeat and draw the half-circle with exactly the same radius from the bottom intersection of our circle and the vertical cross line. That marks the remaining two points of our hexagon at the bottom half of the circle.
Again, feel free to just mark the spots, rather than drawing the full semicircle.
Step 4: Connect the marked points to draw a hexagon
On this picture we have highlighted the six intersecting points that will make the corners of our hexagon.
How To Draw A Perfect Hexagon With Three Divs
Putting a div to the center of the viewport with position:absolute and top:50%;left:50%;transform: translate.
and using before and after elements with rotate and rotate.
setting the divs box-sizing: border-box;border:1px solid blue;height:40px; and 20*2*3^ seems to be 69.28xxxxxxx, so I set the width as that.
but the result seems there are some unperfect pixels at the border crossing point. I don’t know how to fix it.

The borders might be distorting the shapes in your fiddle.
Check out this fiddle: http://jsfiddle.net/zqS3Q/ and replace with this code to see a solid hexagon with no borders:

Also, rotated boxes aren’t necessarily going to be the exact specified pixel dimensions:
New Pattern Swatch Has Been Added
The warning message appears telling you there has been a new Pattern Swatch added in the Swatches panel and that any changes you make in Pattern mode will be applied to this swatch. If you want to create more variations from this pattern swatch in a later phase it’s best to first duplicate the swatch in the Swatches panel and double click the duplicated version to edit it, so you’ll sure your original stays untouched. Click OK.
How To Draw A Regular Hexagon On A Map
I hava many Point. I need to draw the regular hexagon that the point belongs to according to the point.Multiple points can fall within the same hexagon.But hexagons cannot overlap or gap.
Now I find uber h3.But he cannot guarantee the drawing of regular hexagons.
This is the rendering:
Why H3 are not regular hexagons: Uber’s H3 is designed to cover whole globe. There is no way to cover spherical Earth with regular hexagons .
So first thing you need to decide is what’s the scope of your application? If it is global, and you want to use single grid, you have to drop regular hexagons requirements and use something like H3.
If the scope of you application is local and you are using a single projection, you can tile it with regular hexagons using basic math, much simpler than H3 computations.

How To Draw A Hexagon With A Compass
Our first method of how to draw a hexagon uses a compass and a ruler for precise construction – we get a geometrically perfect shape. All sides of the hexagon are the same length exactly half of the diameter of the circle it is inscribed in. That makes it easy to split the circle regularly and mark the required points on the circle with a compass. Lets get into it.
Step 9 Add A Blush To Complete The Look
Draw a sideways oval shape on each side within the hexagon shape. The shapes should be drawn below the eyes, but not right underneath it.
These shapes create an animated blushing effect on the facial expression of the hexagonhow cute!
Now that we have successfully drawn a proportional hexagon with a happy facial expression, its time for the most exciting part, which is coloring your drawing!
This is the part where you can showcase your artistic skills and your ability to mix and match different colors!
As seen in the illustration, we filled in the surface of the hexagon with a skin tone color. To create a skin tone color, mix the colors red, yellow, brown, and white.
Depending on the complexion youre aiming for, you may want to add more of a specific color than the rest.
You can copy the colors in our illustration or use a unique set of colors! Either way, were sure it will turn out beautifully! Have fun playing with colors and watch as the hexagon ultimately comes to life!
Method 3 Of 3:drawing A Rough Hexagon Using Only A Pencil
Step 1: Draw The Circle
1. Open the compass so that when you hold it up to the paper it measures a little less than half of the paper.2. Hold the compass by the part that sticks up on the top. Take the pointed side of the compass and rest it at the center of the paper3. Rest the pencil side of the compass at any point in the circle radius.4. Keeping the point and the pencil on the paper, turn the pencil around the metal tip, creating a circle.

How To Draw A Perfect Hexagon
I promised a tutorial for the hexagon mug rug I made earlier this week. I was going to draw a perfect hexagon and then make some sort of print out template, but then I realized that I personally would rather learn how to make my own than to have to rely on finding one. I decided I would make a tutorial on how to make your very own! What is that saying? Give a man a fish, he eats for a day, teach a man to fish you know the rest 🙂
It is actually quite simple and it is great since you can make it any size you want 🙂
All you need is a compass, a pencil, and some paper.
Decide how big you want your hexagon to be, accounting for any seam allowances. Draw your circle.
Without changing the size you had it set for your circle, take the point of your compass and place it somewhere on the edge of your circle. Make a mark with the pencil on the circle where it hits.
Place your compass point then on the mark you just made, and make a mark again where the pencil hits the circle. Continue this until you have gone all around the circle making 6 marks.
Take a ruler and connect the marks you made.
Voila! A perfect hexagon!
Now cut it out and you have your own perfect hexagon template!
Ill be back tomorrow with the tutorial on how to make the log cabin hexagon block/ mug rug. 🙂
