The Honeycomb Array mode in Cinema 4D's Cloner object makes it easy to offset objects and add offset variation.

Ever since Cinema 4D R18 introduced the Honeycomb Array mode in the Cinema 4D Cloner object, it's my go-to option for creating grids of objects in a single plane. It's better than a Grid Array because it has a built-in and controllable offset for each alternating row, plus offset and perpendicular variation that makes it easy to add a little bit of randomness. This Quicktip shows the basics of the Honeycomb Array - setting the proper plane, the offset direction, the step gap and the count.
