1. Unless you've got a really good reason, then let opengl do the culling for you, it'll be much faster.

2. If you know something isn't visible, don't draw it. :P

3. If you're really insistant, you could just turn off culling and opengl will draw everything you pass it.

Oh.

Well then simply don’t send the culled faces to OpenGL. It can't draw them if you don't send them.



How are you rendering? Immediate mode, Vertex arrays, VBO's ?
