Hexagonal Bowl _Designed by AK_Eric ( http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:569938 ) _Comments and instructions written by Designer: "Simple bowl made out of hexagons. Great for fruit! :) Modeled in Maya.I've uploaded a round version of the bowl: Scale it as needed to fit your build volume. The one in the picture is more of an ovoid, to fit my build volume. Printed on Makerbot Replicator (1): Printed on removable lexan platform. HBP off. Extruded Neon Blue PLA @ 230 deg. 200 micron, 10% infill, 2 shells. I didn't use supports, but you'll get better results if you do, if you want to avoid the slight "eyelashes" that can show up from the bottom of some of the hexagons.Took close to 7 hours to print the one shown in the pics." _***In geometry, a hexagon is a polygon with six edges and six vertices. A regular hexagon has Schläfli symbol {6}. The total of the internal angles of any hexagon is 720°.From bees' honeycombs to the Giant's Causeway, hexagonal patterns are prevalent in nature due to their efficiency. In a hexagonal grid each line is as short as it can possibly be if a large area is to be filled with the fewest number of hexagons. This means that honeycombs require less wax to construct and gain lots of strength under compression. _A regular hexagon is defined as a hexagon that is both equilateral and equiangular. It is bicentric, meaning that it is both cyclic (has a circumscribed circle) and tangential (has an inscribed circle). The common length of the sides equals the radius of the circumscribed circle. All internal angles are 120 degrees. A regular hexagon has 6 rotational symmetries (rotational symmetry of order six) and 6 reflection symmetries (six lines of symmetry), making up the dihedral group D6. The longest diagonals of a regular hexagon, connecting diametrically opposite vertices, are twice the length of one side. From this it can be seen that a triangle with a vertex at the center of the regular hexagon and sharing one side with the hexagon is equilateral, and that the regular hexagon can be partitioned into six equilateral triangles.
