I’ve created a few Visio SmartShapes that can be easily snapped and glued into hexagonal patterns! Check it out!
Visio People Shapes are very popular on this web site, and I just found an excuse to create some more!
Through the magic of Facebook and Twitter, I stumbled upon an interesting video from a very creative guy named Austin Kleon.
In the video, he shows us How to Draw Faces, using a humorously mathematical approach.
The technique translated quite well into a Visio SmartShape, which you can download here and use to add feeling and emotion to your diagrams!

Oblique Connectors For Your 3D Diagrams
Visio network shapes have gone “3D”, but Visio connectors have decidedly not…
…unless you’re the guys behind the creation of the Zeus ZXTM Appliance Network Stencil. Several readers have noticed the cool isometric connectors that the KnowledgeHub guys used in their sample illustration, and want to get ‘hold of ’em.
We’re not sure where the KH folks got those connectors, but a little light bulb went * bing * inside our Visio Guy heads as we remembered yet another an unfinished prototype gathering dust on our HD. Ah yes, Oblique Connector.vsd, from long, long ago…

3D Extruded Map of USA
So we’ve had this experimental Visio drawing containing crude attempts at 3D states laying around since 1993. But we only had three states: Washington, Oregon and California. Well after a few years, a few new Visio features, and some wisdom gained, we’ve finally gotten off our butts and written a little code that helped us produce something a little more useful: an entire map of the USA, where each shape can be extruded into the vertical!
