How to Create a Working Punch-Card Reader With Python and Xpresso

Expresso Mechanic TV shows how to make a punch-card reader in Cinema 4D.

This new tutorial by Expresso Mechanic TV shows how to build the card and scanner and then covers creating the initial animation for the scanner using a combination of Xpresso and Python.
