Regular hexagon properties Convex, cyclic, equilateral, equiangular, equidistant

In geometry, a hexagon (from the Greek ἕξ, hex, meaning “six”, γωνία, gonía, meaning “angle, angle”) is a hexagon or hexagon. The interior angles of any simple (non-self-intersecting) hexagon add up to 720°.

The regular hexagon has the Schläfli notation and can also be constructed as a truncated equilateral triangle, which alternates the two types of sides, using a compass and a straightedge to build the animation of the regular hexagon step by step, given by Euclid’s Elements, Book IV, Proposition 15 gives the product of a power of two different Fermat primes.


When the side length AB is given, draw an arc from point A and point B to get the intersection point M, which is the center of the circumcircle. Transfer the line segment AB four times on the circumcircle, connecting the corners.

The common length of the sides is equal to the circumcircle or radius of the circumcircle, which is equal to Multiply by apothem (the radius of the inscribed circle). All interior angles are 120 degrees. The regular hexagon has six rotational symmetries (sixth-order rotational symmetry) and six reflection symmetries (six lines of symmetry), forming the dihedral group D6. The longest diagonal of a regular hexagon, connecting opposed vertices, is twice the length of one side. We can see that a triangle whose vertex is in the center of a regular hexagon and shares one side with the hexagon is equilateral.

Like squares and equilateral triangles, regular hexagons fit together without any gaps to tile the plane (three hexagons meet at each vertex) and are therefore useful for building tessellation. For this reason, the honeycombs of the hive are hexagonal, and this shape allows the efficient use of space and building materials. The Voronoi diagram of an equilateral triangular lattice is a honeycomb mosaic of hexagons. Although it is equilateral, it is not usually considered trismus.

A regular hexagon has a D6 symmetry

There are 16 subgroups. There are at most 8 isomorphisms: self, 2 dihedra, 4 cycles, and trivial, these symmetries represent a regular hexagon of nine different symmetries. John Conway labels these in alphabetical and group order. 12 is completely symmetric and a1 is asymmetric. p6, an equilateral hexagon made of three mirrors that can alternate long and short sides, d6, an equilateral hexagon with equal sides but alternating two different interior angles at the vertices. The two forms are duals of each other, with the half-symmetrical order of a regular hexagon. The i4 form is a regular hexagon flattened or stretched in a symmetrical direction. g2 Hexagon, also known as a hexagonal parallelogram with opposite sides parallel.

Each subgroup symmetry allows one or more degrees of freedom in an irregular form. Only the g6 subgroup has no degrees of freedom but can be regarded as directed edges.

Symmetrical hexagons g2, i4, and r12, as parallelograms, can be translated into mosaics in the Euclidean plane. Other hexagonal shapes can tile the plane in different directions.

Related Polygons and Tiles


Regular hexagons have Schläfli notation. A regular hexagon is part of a regular hexagon tile with three hexagonal faces around each vertex.

Regular hexagons can also be created as truncated equilateral triangles, with Schläfli notation. Seeing that there are two types (colors) of edges, this form has only D3 symmetry.

The truncated hexagon is the dodecagon, alternating two types (colors) of sides. The alternating hexagon is an equilateral triangle. A regular hexagon can have equilateral triangles on its edges, forming a hexagon. A regular hexagon can be split into six equilateral triangles by adding a center point. This pattern is repeated in regular triangle tiles.

A regular hexagon can be expanded into a regular dodecagon by adding alternating squares and equilateral triangles around it. This pattern is repeated in the diamond-shaped tri-hexagon tiles.


From the honeycombs of bees to the Giant’s Causeway, hexagonal patterns are ubiquitous because of their efficiency. In a hexagonal grid, each line is as short as possible if you want to fill a large area with the fewest hexagons. This means that the honeycomb requires less wax to construct and achieves great strength under compression.

Irregular hexagons with parallel opposite sides are called parallel sides and can also be tiled by translation. In three dimensions, hexagonal prisms with parallel opposing faces are called parallelepipeds, and they can be translated to tessellate 3 space.

In geometry, a hexagonal prism is a prism with a hexagonal box base. The term octahedron is mainly used to refer to the regular octahedron, which has eight triangular faces. Due to the ambiguity of the word octahedron and the tiling nature of the various octahedrons, the word is rarely used without clarification.

Before sharpening, many pencils take the shape of a long hexagonal prism.



To understand the process of this hexagonal box, the editor went to the printing factory to understand the printing process. The hazy feeling of the past suddenly became a lot brighter, and I saw the real process of printing with my own eyes.

For the printing of hexagonal boxes, the process flow is divided into pre-press, in-press, and post-press.

Before the hexagonal box is printed

First of all, we need to design the packaging of the hexagonal box. After the idea is completed, find the required materials or the general guests will have their logo and required printing content, and use CorelDraw and Photoshop to make them on the computer. It is time to set the size of the gift box. Generally, when designing the manuscript, the image area is expanded by 3mm to the outside of the cutting first. The purpose is to ensure that the image is complete and accurate when printing and cutting. The area of image area in the design original is expanded beyond the cutting area to ensure that the white edge is not exposed after printing. When making registration marks, the registration color should be selected, that is, four colors of 100, and the line thickness should be less than or equal to 0.25pt.


When outputting the file, you need to carry a font library or convert the text into a curve when using special fonts in the design. If the graphics are stored in TIFF format in Photoshop, please delete unnecessary channels and paths before saving. After the design is completed, set the page, Then use the imposition software preps for imposition. The purpose of imposition is to meet the needs of folding pages and then performing film output and proofing. Proofing is to produce a small number of simulated printing samples before the formal batch printing for proofing. Check whether there are jumps. Word or font picture variation, to ensure the correct rate of printing, after correct, use the traditional process of CMYK to print an ink draft, as the customer’s signature draft and the ink color specifications printed on the machine, paper, etc. Reference basis, after the customer signs the sample You can go to the printing house to print.

During the printing of the hexagonal box

After the finished manuscript enters the plate making, the pictures are scanned and separated by an electronic color separation machine, the text and lines are taken with a black and white camera, and the text, illustrations, etc. are made up according to the instructions on the finished manuscript, and then the version is printed, and then the color proofing is printed out for proofreading. Then laminate and apply UV oil.

After the hexagon box is printed

Gift packaging is generally more delicate and needs bronzing and glue. The characteristics of bronzing: are clear and beautiful patterns, bright colors, wear-resistant and weather-resistant. And bronzing in graphic design can play the role of finishing touch and highlighting the theme of the design, especially for trademarks and registered names, the effect is more significant. To cut out some unnecessary things, you need to use a die-cutting machine to cut them off, then glue, and paste the box, and after molding, make some delicate decorations on the gift box to make the gift box more beautiful and delicate.

Finally, you can go to the delivery, put on the gift, decorate it, and then you can take it as a gift.
In the printing process, the Chinese JERL company has done a very good job, and you can consult them if you have any questions.


  • The hexagonal box can reduce the cost of raw materials

When round products are placed in the hexagonal box, the corner clearance can be saved, and the strength of the carton can be improved by increasing the number of corners. In the case of the same loading volume, the paper volume of the hexagonal box can be saved by 0.932 square meters, which is about 3% of the cost.

  • The shape of the hexagonal box is unique and novel

At present, 90% of the packaging boxes on the market are either square or round, and they are found in various industries and fields. However, as far as hexagonal boxes are concerned, we have seen very few of them. When consumers see novel packaging forms, they will also Look at the hexagonal box in many fields of vision, which also greatly improves the purchasing power of consumers, so JERL packaging company recommends that those brand companies who are choosing the shape of the packaging box can try to choose the hexagonal box, which is very creative!

  • The hexagonal box can be printed with more product promotional content

Because the ordinary square packaging box has only 6 sides at most, while the hexagonal box has 8 sides, which can print more content, which is of great help to the brand and attracts attention that the general carton does not have. Effect.


Although the hexagon box is not as good as the square box and the round box, its application scope is also very wide, such as the Turkish Delight hexagon box, hexagonal chocolate explosion box, hexagonal jewelry box, hexagonal origami box, wooden hexagonal box, kraft paper hexagonal box, hexagonal jewelry box,

Regarding the customization of packaging boxes, according to the needs of different people, the price of hexagonal boxes may be a little higher than that of square boxes, but for custom packaging boxes, gift boxes, or other boxes, quality will not be ignored because of price, because A good box can have a direct impact on customers, and our reputation is all about the reassurance and satisfaction of customers, which can make the road go farther and farther.


To sum up, hexagon Boxes are the best choice as a gift box, no matter in terms of appearance, practical use, or price, especially when choosing JERL Packaging Company in China, they are the best company for pillow boxes. they offer a variety of colors and designs and can be manufactured to your specifications, styled and sized to fit your company’s products, or added to your logo for a unique brand look.
