hello,

i am a newbie in OGL and I'm in a problematic situation. you see, i have model with all its co-ordinates but it is not at the origin. so when i rotate it, it revolves around the origin and not about the origin.so i think i should first translate it to the origin and then rotate it and then translate it back to the original positio. the problem is how do i find the displacement between the origin and the model's center to translate it to the origin. please help me.
