A few weeks ago, Cycling '74's Wes Smith posted a patch on the forums after someone inquired about how to make an array of hexagons. Cool patch! What I've been finding is that a great way to learn Gen is to take some existing bit of code and try to see how it would be put together in Gen-land. Besides helping my Gen chops, it also gives me a better understanding of the underlying concepts involved.

This fairly simple patch uses jit.gen to create the necessary positioning matrix for the always classy> combo. The next step for me is to figure out interesting ways to position the geometry in 3D space.
