Quadric object question


Until now I made a new quadric object (gluNewQuadric) for every sphere or cylinder i wanted to draw, but then i accidentally gave 2 cylinders the same quadric, and it worked. And since all the quadric objects had the same parameters, i can use only one quadric object, or can i?

Since i have no other computer to test this on, and the reference page has nothing on this, i’m asking you: Can i draw several objects with one quadric object, or should i assign a new one for every object?

Thanks! :slight_smile:

you can use the same one to my knowledge; it’s worked for me in the past.
