When creating Hex diagrams for printed media, you can use raster graphics (if their resolution is high enough) or use a vector graphics application. Some tools specific to Hex have been created:
- Meron Brouwer's hexgame is a package for LaTeX
- Tom Ace's golem2eps is an excellent still-improving EPS creator from a SGF file.
- Cameron Browne has a tool for setting Hex diagrams, which he used in his book.
- It is possible to type Hex boards directly into text by using one of the Unicode and ASCII boards
