You can create a hexagonal object of the type you need by using the Geant4 solid “G4Polycone”. This is the simplest way to describe the object to Geant4. By using G4Polycone the tracks will see one object and stop only on its surface. G4Polycone enables you to create solids defined by regular polygons (= same size sides, same angles) whose center points are on a line perpendicular to their surface. It sounds as though your use case is the simplest type of G4Polycone - one that has only two planes, its top and bottom. I suggest to look at the Geant4 documentation for the details of G4Polycone, and to understand the relevant constructor.
