Hi everyone,

I would need help with the approach to be choosen.

I want to be able to tessellate a freeform surface with hexagons. For my idea, in order to allow the curvatures, the hexagons may deform only in side lenght, while the angles shoul stay constant (120°) as much as possible. Which approach should I use?

Maybe circle packing can be a strategy? Or a dynamic relaxation adding if possible the constraint on the angles?

Is even possible to tessellate any freeform surface just by using deformed hexagons (with constant angle and free side lenght)?

The effect that I woul like to obtain is like the one in the picture. I obtained it with the Mobius Transformation, which is valid only for spherical shapes.

Thank you very much, any suggestion is appreciate

Daniel
