each of your objects should have its own origin. so if you rotate the object, it rotates around its origin, not around the world origin. after rotation you translate the objects into worldspace, which means you move them to the right coordinates.
you can perform all this in one transformation step through matrices, and you _must_ du that with openGL.

Let me see if I have this right then. First I rotate my objects normally with matrices as such

mx[0] = 1;mx[4] = 0;mx[8] = 0;mx[12] = 0;
mx[1]=0;mx[5]=cos(x);mx[9] = sin(x);mx[13]=0;
mx[2]=0;mx[6]=-sin(x);mx[10]=cos(x);mx[14]=0;
mx[3]=0;mx[7]=0;mx[11]=0;mx[15] = 1;
glMultMatrixd(mx);

mx[0]=cos(y);mx[4]=0;mx[8]=-sin(y);mx[12]=0;
mx[1]=0;mx[5]=1;mx[9]=0;mx[13]=0;
mx[2]=sin(y);mx[6]=0;mx[10]=cos(y);mx[14]=0;
mx[3]=0;mx[7]=0;mx[11]=0;mx[15]=1;
glMultMatrixd(mx);

mx[0]=cos(z);mx[4]=sin(z);mx[8]=0;mx[12]=0;
mx[1]=-sin(z);mx[5]=cos(z);mx[9]=0;mx[13]=0;
mx[2]=0;mx[6]=0;mx[10]=1;mx[14]=0;
mx[3]=0;mx[7]=0;mx[11]=0;mx[15]=1;
glMultMatrixd(mx);

and then just call glTranslated to move it to where I want it to be. Or do I have to do they rotations with out calling glMultMatrix, and multiply the vertices by the rotation matrix by hand? If no, I guess my next question, is how do I know how much the object needs to be translated by.
thanx for all the help, I'm a little new to 3d (can u tell)

I've been working on a 3D modeler, and I was wondering how to do rotations without having the object move all over the screen, i.e., How to rotate around locale coords instead of world. I'm using OpenGL. I'd perfer to just be pointed in the direction of a site with an article on the subject. thanx all for the help.
