Julian Field shows how to create a hexagon display using a Python Effector in Cinema 4D.

A new tutorial from Julian Field, also known as the Xpresso Mechanic, surprisingly, contains no Xpresso. His latest dive covers working with Python in Cinema 4D to create a random array of hexagon tiles.

Create a Retro-Futuristic Hexagon Display.

“In this episode, we learn how to create a retro-futuristic hexagon display, similar to those in old sci-fi shows, such as Blake’s 7 and the like,” Julian notes. The tutorial covers writing simple python code line by line to create the hexagon display.
