To my inexperienced, just-jumping-into-3D-ness... Triangle Strips appeared to be drawing triangles from the last 2 plus the one you next define so it would be: 1 3 | 5 7 | | | 2 4 | 6 8 | etc. (for sides of a cube) Something tells me I''m incredibly wrong, because then I wouldn''t be able to create an entire cube, just the sides around it, not the top/bottom. Help? ----------------- The Goblin ----------------- "Oh, God..." "Yes?" <- My Response

You are wrong, but you still can''t do a cube with a triangle strip without hiding some vertexes.

Assume 6 vertexes a,b,c,d,e,f

Then the triangles rendered, in order, are:


| /| /|
| / | / |
|/ |/ |

Each triangle is rendered using one additional vertex (not two) with the two previous.
