Where?

In a 3D app?

In OpenGL/Direct3D?

In the Unity/Unreal etc. game engine?

In C/C++/C#/Java etc. ?

 

C/C++ code:

void moveTo( int x, int y ) {
   // fill me
}
void lineTo( int x, int y ) {
   // fill me
}
void hexagon( int x, int y, int radius ) {
   for( int i = 0; i < 6; i++ ) {
      double angle1 = 2.0 * M_PI * 360.0 * i / 6;
      double angle2 = 2.0 * M_PI * 360.0 * ( i + 1 ) / 6;
      moveTo( x + sin( angle1 ) * radius, y + cos( angle1 ) * radius );
      lineTo( x + sin( angle2 ) * radius, y + cos( angle2 ) * radius );
   }
}

 

In the 3D application. I used the Sphere tool, set Z to 0 to have a circle, changed the number of segments to 6, and then used the Array tool:
