How to create Planar Hexagons Using Planarization Forces


This a quick tutorial to show you how can you create shell-like surfaces made of planar hexagons,you will learn some useful aspects form Daniel Piker´s Kangaroo Plugin like:

-How to use Kangaroo to optimize geometries to a specific condition(in this case creating planar elements).

-Set Up & Combine different forces together.

-Removing Duplicate lines and points.

For this exercise you will also need to have installed Nathan Miller´s Lunchbox plugin, as I think it has the most convenient and easy tools there are to create honeycomb patterns.
