Today I will be showing you how to make hexagons in Minecraft, because they are the bestagon. 1st method is building a hexagon by itself, but the 2nd method …

Semi-smart-ass: You can’t really make a perfect hexagon within minecraft. If each side were to be equal, and assuming you number the sides in a clockwise/counterclockwise fashion, then side 1 and side 4 will have to be sqrt(3) * length of a side apart (I think…)… which is impossible because sqrt(3) isn’t a rational number.
Step 3- Hexagon shape (Hold shift for perfect shape) Save that picture and open it in paint, and zoom in as much as you can to get it block by block. That doesn’t look like a perfect, equilateral hexagon to me. A perfect hexegon is constructed of 12 30-60-90 triangles.

Here’s a 64×64 one I made. I fit the entire thing in a square. The sides on top and bottom are half the length as the square’s dimensions, and the diagonal sides each have a slope of 2:1, moving 1/4 of the square’s dimension horizontally and 1/2 of the square’s dimension vertically.
The slope and angle chosen in the links are purposefully very close to each other, 3/17 = 0.176470588 and arctan (10 degrees) = 0.172792435, a difference small enough that won’t be noticed for ~270 blocks. (Note arctan (3/17) ~= 10.007980degrees).

How do you make a hexagon with 12 triangles?
A perfect hexegon is constructed of 12 30-60-90 triangles. Taking advantage of this, construct, for layout, a line of a length equally divisible by 6. This is the centerline of your hexagon. From points 1/6 of the way in from either end of the line, project lines that are sqrt (3)/6 the length of your centerline in either direction.
What is the distance between two points on a hexagon?
The ‘width’ side of the rectangle you can fit a hexagon in is 1.154 times as wide as the ‘height’. So, if the distance between two opposinge sides is for example 100, the distance between two points on the hexagon is 115.4.
Is a hexagon a square with some corners cut off?
I realised (too late) the obvious: a hexagon (a perfect one at least) is NOT a square with some corners cut off.Every single hexagon build ive seen in minecraft has the shape of the first picture. This is nice and symmetrical and easy to build but its also wrong.
What is the centerline of a hexagon made of?
