I draw a spheroid with its center at (0,0,1.4) with radius 0.5. Only a part of the sphere is shown. It looks like the sphere is cut off at distance 1.0. I am using orthogonal projection.

Is there a way to set the far end clipping plane? Thanks.

specify well all the parameters of ur glOrtho, and dont forget that u have always 6 far planes ( top,bottom,left,right ,znear and zfar )
and verify all ur modelview transformations ( rotation translation)
and that all ur sphere is in the viewing volume of ur camera .
