FEATURE REQUEST:

Would a 'hexagonal tiled plane' tool be useful?

Parameters:


hexagon size (corner to corner? center to side?)
plane bounding box (since the edge will be ragged)
extrusion
plane (XZ, XY, YZ)
(in Layout) Parent
(in Layout) Target
Surface
(in Layout) Visibility (BBox, Vertices, Wireframe, etc)
INTERACTIVE: row, column, bbox, hex size (since all these interact w/each other)
[_] Poles (makes each hex have a Pole)

You'd probably want a preview mode for this tool-- that's beyond LScript/Python, is it not?

I included the "in Layout" options in case this got implemented as a Layout Modeling Tool, which would be very logical.
