Today, Li Li from MOC Recipes returns with another creation and beautiful geometric ideas using the new hexagonal LEGO® piece 27255 (Plate, Modified 6 x 6 Hexagonal with Pin Hole).
The Nexogon really reminds me of some sort of sci-fi beehive, so I created a large sci-fi colony.
The genesis of this model was that I wanted to explore ways to make tight beehive shapes with Nexogons. With the hinge plate piece (Design ID 73983), we can connect two Nexogons on their long sides.
Then expanding on this, we can create a large hexagon.
We can also expand this hexagon out a bit with this trick...
...and then expand again.
This expansion can be continued, but the result will become more and more fragile.
Here are a couple of other things that I came up with using these large hexagons.
