Create hexagonal grid

Post by [-hh] » Sat Jun 30, 2018 1:20 am

The attached simple demo stack creates a hexagonal grid.

You can set
  • the number of rows
  • the number of cols
  • the horizontal radius of the circumellipses
  • the vertical radius of the circumellipses
  • choose a flat or pointed top of the hexagons
Moreover you get the grid element's name by mouseEnter and can toggle the color of the elements by mouseDown.
