I am creating a map in QGIS and I am using a hex bin layer. To create this layer I used the MMQGIS plugin and created a grid layer. However, the size of my hexagons that I created are too small, and I was wondering how I can change their size to make them bigger.

    During the creation of these hexbins of course. Which tool did you use? You need to provide us with more information here

You have to choose a greater value for H Spacing or V Spacing.

For hexagons, they are not independent from each other, so you only need to change one of them.

The plugin creates a polygon layer, so not much chance to change the grid afterwards.

You could hack the result by assigning a custom CRS with kilometers as units, then reproject that to metres. I'm not sure if other scaling would work this way too.
