How to Draw a Concave Hexagon

Save

A polygon is a closed figure that has three or more sides. There are several types of polygons, such as hexagons, which have six sides. Polygons are often regular and consist of internal diagonals, or line segments that connect two nonconsecutive endpoints. Many polygons are drawn as convex polygons, in which no diagonal lies outside of the shape. However, there are many irregular-shaped polygons in which at least one diagonal lies outside of the polygon.

Things You'll Need

  • Protractor
  • Pencil
  • Paper
  • Pen
  • Draw a regular hexagon in which all of the signs are the same length using a protractor and a pencil. Use the shape of a stop sign as a guide.

  • Erase two adjacent sides of the hexagon with an eraser.

  • Draw the two new sides inward, until each reaches the center of the hexagon.

  • Repeat steps 1 to 3 with two other sides, if applicable.
