I understand that evaluators uses the start, end and control points to draw a 3D surface.The control points do not lie on the surface itself so to draw a 3D 1/4 hollow cylinder. What should the middle control point be? i tried these points: GLfloat ctrlPoints[3][3][3]={{{-d,0.0f,1.0f},{-d,-d,1.0f},{0.0f,-d,1.0f}}, //v=0 {{-d,0.0f,0.0f},{-d,-d,0.0f},{0.0f,-d,0.0f}}, //v=1 {{-d,0.0f,-1.0f},{-d,-d,-1.0f},{0.0f,-d,-1.0f}}};//v=2 assumming d is radius of cylinder. But somehow it doesn''t look that accurate. In addition the following code work when i use GL_LINE but not if i change it to GL_FILL, how do i resolve this? // the setup function glMap2f(GL_MAP2_VERTEX_3, // Type of data generated 0.0f, // Lower u range 10.0f, // Upper u range 3, // Distance between points in the data 3, // Dimension in u direction (order) 0.0f, // Lower v range 10.0f, // Upper v range 9, // Distance between points in the data 3, // Dimension in v direction (order) &ctrlPoints[0][0][0]); // array of control points // Enable the evaluator glEnable(GL_MAP2_VERTEX_3); // Map a grid of 100 points from 0 to 100 glMapGrid2f(10,0.0f,10.0f,10,0.0f,10.0f); // Evaluate the grid, using lines glEvalMesh2(GL_LINE,0,10,0,10); glEnable(GL_AUTO_NORMAL);
