This provides a new hexagon texture with fac, color, cell, coords and position outputs.

Based on 3D projected cube method from here:

Looks awesome. I think hexagon grid or simply hex grid might be a more properly descriptive name for it though as its not just a single hexagon.

Fix weird GLSL precision issue. Adding 0.0 to the position fixes this. This was found whilst plugging position into white noise.

Tidy up and use vec3/point/float3 as mentioned by @Bartosz Moniewski (monio). Thanks.

Fix aspect ratio for XY coords.

Based on user testing and feedback from @Bartosz Moniewski (monio). Added color output and control over size and radius of the shape. Also changed name to "Hex Grid Texture".

Thanks to @Bartosz Moniewski (monio) feedback, radius now works more intuitively. Fixed menu name.
