    Round objects - drawing a round table

    Hi,
    How would one go about drawing a round table, i've heard that it involves drawing many triangles or quads. Any advice would be much appreciated.

    Thanks, Paul

    Draw a very thin and wide cylinder, there you have the plate. Of course, the more "round" it should be, the more polygons it needs.

    I suggest to use a triangle fan for the top and bottom surface, and a triangle strip for the sides of the thin cylinder.
