Hey i do not need a cutting of a hexagon i need a folding version!
I really loved your site and your videos, completely easy to learn!! But I had tried to make the hexagon as your video, and it was an disaster. xD
I looked others ways to make it, and I found them on this site: http://oqueemeuenosso.blogspot.com/2010/10/origami-como-fazer-um-hexagon...
It was just to share, because I thought this model easier http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_AlNyhvdfAW8/TLzgJOLwFUI/AAAAAAAABsM/zVYL3wrS8W...
Sorry for the english. =P
i tried your method, it works though, but i'm really bad at this. thanks for the help!
I would find it much easier to just make a square from the rectangle and fold the hexagon from that. Using and making the two diagonal creases and the horizontal so it becomes |X| with the extra cut off.
Actually, I prefer the folding sequence for the rectangle. So I personally would probably first make a rectangle out of the square, and then get that hexagon. :p
That's just because the folding sequence for the square produces some creases that you probably won't need, whereas the one for the rectangle just needs quite usable creases.
its better to fold a hexagon out of rectangular paper because for the hexagon from the square, you get an extra diagonal crease. By the way, have you folded the flower yet?
Actually, no, I haven't folded that flower yet. I just like the style of diagramming, and it includes a section on how to get a hexagon. I agree that the method for getting a hexagon from a rectangle is preferable, which I also somewhat note in the video. However, I think it's helpful to see both methods and then pick the one that's appropriate for the sheet of paper at hand.
