Inflated/ bubble hexagons

Does anyone know how to make curved hexagons like this in grasshopper?


One way to do this, is by creating a hexagonal grid of cells, turning the cells into meshes and relaxing the meshes with Kangaroo:

You need Kangaroo 2, which comes with Rhino 6, for this to work. (21.6 KB)

another way is to “rail revolve” a section of an ellipse (or other curve), using the hexagon as the rail, and the centroid as a point of rotation.
