Compound Eye Script

I know jack shit about python. Can I say shit? Anyway, I was thinking of a really cool script. One that makes a compound eye like bugs have. Out of hexigons. An icosphere with a subdivision of around 6 creates the triangles that make up a perfect hexigon and they are already in the perfect place. I don’t know. I guess I’m asking if this is even a script type thing. Is this something that would be easy to do with a script? Maybe one of you guys would think this was a fun problem to work on.

You may want to check out Sverchok. No scripting required, just node building

thanks just downloaded it. I’ll read up on it and try to see if I can figure it out.
