Hexagon with side to side distance instead of point to point distance

I need to make a hexagon with a side to side distance instead of a point to point distance. I know there is a way to change the center line of the circle from the point of its segments to the center of its segments but I don’t remember how. Can you help?

Until now, there is no way to change this, but you can

  • create a normal hexagon
  • rotate it (30°)
  • scale it (with shift key) and enter the length (side to side)

Create the hexagon, any size.
Group perimeter plus face
