Why on earth is that the default?? How is that possibly of any use?

In[1114]:= hexN = hex // N

Out[1114]= {{0., 0.}, {1., 0.}, {0.5, 0.866025}, {-0.5,
0.866025}, {-1., 0.}, {-0.5, -0.866025}, {0.5, -0.866025}}

In[1115]:= {Part[#, 2], Part[#, 1], #} & /@ hexN

Out[1115]= {{0., 0., {0., 0.}}, {0., 1., {1., 0.}}, {0.866025,
0.5, {0.5, 0.866025}}, {0.866025, -0.5, {-0.5,
0.866025}}, {0., -1., {-1.,
0.}}, {-0.866025, -0.5, {-0.5, -0.866025}}, {-0.866025,
0.5, {0.5, -0.866025}}}

In[1116]:= Sort[%1115]

Out[1116]= {{-0.866025, -0.5, {-0.5, -0.866025}}, {-0.866025,
0.5, {0.5, -0.866025}}, {0., -1., {-1., 0.}}, {0.,
0., {0., 0.}}, {0.,
1., {1., 0.}}, {0.866025, -0.5, {-0.5, 0.866025}}, {0.866025,
0.5, {0.5, 0.866025}}}
