# Dimension issue

why for this hexagon to be symmetric, the x and y dimensions have to be 2,1 of difference?

If I enter the same value for both x and y, the hexagon looses its symmetry:

Rotating the hexagon, things results really weird:

If I rotate it in edit mode, everything goes messy:

Any ideas? Why do I have to make x and y 2,1 apart?

So if you want to set the dimensions of the bounding box to contain a regular hexagon, height H, you would set the Y dimension to H, and the X dimension to H*0.866, which you can enter straight into the X field.
