how do you make an open hexagon out of magnet balls? we’ll show you! watch the video or check out the step by step guide below.
this build is made from 360 speks and uses 1 color.
the speks open hexagon step-by-step:
create a chain and make a ring of 6 speks. wrap your chain around the ring and continue until each side of the hexagon is 3 speks long.
make a new chain and wrap around the hexagon created in step one. continue until each of the sides is 6 speks long.
use a splitter card to remove the hexagon created in step one from the center of the hexagon from step two.
repeat steps two and three until you have 5 holey hexagons.
join one side of each hexagon to the next in a chain, be sure your joints are aligned, not interlocked.
accordion fold the chain back and forth to stack all 5 hexagons into a stack to complete the shape!
