Placing a bunch of comps on a percise triangular grid

Hello!
I want to place many copies of the same pre-comp on a precise triangular grid.
Here is a visual example:


Is there a way to do it precisely? They don't have to do anything special but the initial placement should be precise.

Hi dor peer,

What is the graphic in the precomp that you're trying to place? B/c - in my mind - the correct approach will depend on what is in that precomp. For ex., in the visual example you gave, if the precomp is one of those dots, then I would do it differently than if the precomp is a triangle made up of three of those dots.

Let me know and I'll see if I can help. And maybe you can post a pic of the precomp ... that may help in figuring out exactly what you're trying to do.

The precomp is made of a single dot resembling a small light

You could use a grid arrangement script:

You may have to select every other row and offset them.
