There is an interesting themed collection of 3D printed hexagons on Thingiverse. María Loureiro aka @tecnoloxia started a project named @100Hex where she shares her designs. Many hexagons represent different patterns, but some are based on pieces of art, recognisable images or events. On her Thingiverse project page, María encourages makers to add to the collection by using “Remix It” option. And we have witnessed that many do participate by adding their own 3D printed hexagons with customised designs.

Tips and Tricks:
Before editing the original STL file, please make sure that its licence allows that
Use a spacer for the tessellation (to arrange the shapes closely together with equal intervals)
Before glueing make sure you are 100% happy with the position – it will be hard to remove
Use “dries clear” glue
All parts of design should be attached to one another
Wait until the make has cooled down completely before removing it from the printing bed
