Hexagonal Grid

What's this?
This is a plugin under Effect/Render menu.
It allows you to create a hexagonal grid.
The grid is centered on the middle of the picture (or selection).
Oh, BTW, thanks to Boltbait for anti-aliasing code...

Download it!
Plugin HexaGrid.dll

Posted ImageHere is the DLLPosted Image

The source is available with the plugins package!

How to install
Close Paint.net
Unzip and (re)place the DLL in your Effect folder usually: C:/Program Files/Paint.NET/Effects

The User interface
Posted Image

Not so much to say about it...

Size horz/vert:
You choose the grid size (1 to 1000, default:100). Uncheck the box to change separatly the sliders.

Draw mode:
You could choose between six drawing mode (see the UI).
It is possible to mix the 3 horizontal modes or the 3 vertical modes.
but you can't mix horizontal with vertical. To do so you must run the effect one more time...

Brush width:
You choose the brush size (between 1 and 100).

Transparency:
You choose the transparency/alpha level (between 0 and 255)

Anti-aliased:
You choose with/without anti-aliasing.

<End of lines:
Check the box to have triangles instead half-circles at the end of the lines.
You need to set the transparency low to see this option.

Some examples:

Thanks MadJik!

I've often thought something similar to this should be included in PdN as a Fill Style.

I found a small bug in it...

Posted Image

Canvas size = 400x400


Also, if you leave the canvas size at default (800x600), the same bug can be reproduced if you change the Size to 134 and the Brush width to 10.

Hexact! ;)
Reload the DLL, should be ok now...
I've seen this case for center but not for right...
Sorry for the trouble!


BTW: Thanks all for your comments.

Scoop:
I'm working on version 2 : choose horizontal or vertical (for not oblique side)...

Hi Madjik,
I was trying to achieve the effects in your picture. So I applied the Oblique effect to the hexagons but found that some of the hexagons were out of alignment or incomplete.

How did you create your picture?

Hi Madjik,

A closer look at your picture told me that you probably had two layers and moved the second layer to create the 3-dimensional effect!

Thanks for another good plug-in as well as a simple example of how useful it could be!

What...how? That's one of the most amazing things I've seen in a long time. Tutorial would be awesome!

Excellent plugin, by the way. I use it a lot.
