Is there anyway to get the vertices that gluSphere would draw instead of having it actually draw the sphere?

Thanks,

Dave

good question. but probably cant. it sends data to gpu inside the call itself.

It is possible, but it would be probably easier to write a sphere generation routine yourself :) The source implementation for GLU is freely available, feel free to inspire yourself

Zengar: It is possible ...

would be good to know how this magic works.
