Butterfly in OpenGL


#1

Hello! I have to design a butterfly with OpenGL. Can you help me with some information? I say I have not worked before. Thank you! A beautiful day!

OpenGL is not what you would use to design a 2D or 3D model such as a butterfly. You’d use a GUI drawing app or modeling program to do that, as they provide special tools to simplify model design and construction.

OpenGL is 3D graphics API implemented by GPU graphics drivers. It is what a drawing app or modeling program/package might make use of under-the-hood to draw your model on the screen via a GPU. Or you might make use of it if you decide to implement your own custom software to draw / render models (such as your butterfly) on the screen using a GPU.
