Hi Ethan.

Using Mesh+ is possible to simulate ngons mesh and map them using bounding box constituted by 6 vertices. Thus, in this case each hexagon is subdivided by 6 triangle meshes and those triangles are used as reference to map the whole mesh.

It is possible to use this technique to map also voronoi meshes.

I assume this is self supporting, so what shape constitutes the basic "voussoir"? The interior hexagons?
