In QGIS 3.18, I need to convert vector points into polygons for a client and there was a plugin that did this in QGIS 2 but I can't find anywhere in the questions that shows me how to do it.

The answer below created the polygon for me but it only gives me three types of areas, rectangles, circles and diamonds, the client wants the shape to be a hexagon based on the width field in the data. The data field has a metre amount as in 5 for 5 metres.

  • This doesn't seem to create polygons as the client requires

  • It created the circles based on the data ok, but I need the shape to be a hexagon, still can't find anything to do this.

  • I've added the parameter value to the answer to get a hexagon. Commented May 19, 2021 at 7:29

There is an equivalent tool, namely "Rectangles, Ovals, Diamonds", in the QGIS's Toolbox(Ctrl+Alt+T) under Vector geometry.

Set Shape as Oval and Segments value as 6 to get a hexagon.
