As close to regular hexagonal prisms as I could make.

Long ago, I built some pentagonal shaped columns (odd number to avoid parallel walls). The enclosures worked well, but nothing special.

These multi-side structures can be quite rigid due to the short panel width. Very simple construction...cut the panels at the proper angles, tape the edges together with duct tape, apply glue, roll into shape.
