@NSD ... always nice when the tutorial writer is given ideas to think about .  I really like your second image

Potential drill bit forming in my mind (better than a labotomy ...)

About the only way I can think of to make a hex head bolt is to use shape3-d and make a box shaped turned 315 degrees. Not ideal, but...

How would it look if you put a rectangle of the texture on another layer in the middle of the 'hex' ?

Sort of superimposing the flat part on

That can work, I thought of that too. 360 divided by 6 = 60 degrees. Here's how it came out.

I think that really works.  I should say thanks because your post above helped improve the plug in BarbieQ's challenge of adding boxes
