Drawing Mesh Issue

#1

Why do i get these extra lines when loading objects ?

How are you drawing them (show code)?

#3
void tris_indiced(float mesh[],int meshSize,unsigned int indices[],int indiceSize) {
  glBufferData(GL_ARRAY_BUFFER, meshSize, mesh, GL_DYNAMIC_DRAW);
  glBufferData(GL_ELEMENT_ARRAY_BUFFER, indiceSize, indices, GL_DYNAMIC_DRAW);
  glDrawElements(GL_TRIANGLES, indiceSize, GL_UNSIGNED_INT, NULL );
};
glPolygonMode( GL_FRONT_AND_BACK, GL_FILL );
tris_indiced(sphere_vertices,sizeof(sphere_vertices),sphere_indices,sizeof(sphere_indices) );

This isn’t much code, but it’s enough to see one obvious mistake: indiceSize cannot be the correct value for both glBufferData and glDrawElements. The former needs the size in bytes, the latter needs the number of indices.

Also:

Are sphere_vertices and sphere_indices arrays? You can’t use sizeof on a pointer to a dynamically-allocated array as it will be equal to the size of the pointer. Maybe you’re aware of that, but it’s a pretty common mistake around here.

In any case, you shouldn’t be passing sizeof(sphere_indices) to glDrawElements as it needs the number of indices, not the size in bytes…

Problem Solved ! Thank You.
